At the risk of dating myself, I can tell you that the walls of the girlish bedroom of my youth were bedazzled with all manner of centerfolds from the likes of magazinesfrom the 1960’s version of “16” and Tiger Beat. Since my mother was reticent to let me peruse the pages of her beloved Woman’s Day, the teeny bopper rags were the only magazine reading material that I was able to lay my hands on.
As you all know, I am always on the hunt for good reading material for my tween daughters. I was recently introduced to a company called Discovery Girls. They put out a magazine that is geared to girls ages 8 and up. The content is driven by those questions that only the tween girls can pose. Like how to deal with life’s most embarrassing moments.
Come to think of it, maybe I need a little advice on that topic as well.
Anyhoo. They feature real girls on the covers, not celebrities, and each month, Discovery Girls chooses 12 girls from a specific state to inspire their readers.
Discovery Girls has also published a Fab Girls Guide, which is a 4-book set that includes Friendship Hardship, Getting Through Tough Times, Getting Your Questions Answered, and Sticky Situations. If you purchase all four, the set runs $29.95 (with no shipping fees). This applies to U.S. shipping addresses only.
We received two issues of the magazine and a copy of Sticky Situations. Both of my girls squirreled them off to their room and devoured them. I love that both the book and the articles are written from a young girl’s perspective. My 9 year old has particularly enjoyed reading about how to handle the horrors of body perspiration, and other burning topics.
The magazines also cover widespread topics like fashion, gift ideas, EMOTIONS, and cultivating friendships. All in a language that a tween girl can understand. A subscription runs $24.95 for 6 issues plus a Super-Sized Collector’s Edition.
This is a wonderful addition to our reading library.
