Discovery Girls Magazine Review & Giveaway


Being a "tween" is not an easy thing.  When I was that age, things were a bit simpler than they are today.  We didn't have all the crazy things to worry about like they do today.  A bully was someone you just tried to avoid, but now with all the social media, they have to worry about cyber bullying.  I remember wanting to be "big" enough to read the "teen" magazines.  I've been going through that very same thing with my "tween".  She really wanted to read some of the magazines, but I have found a lot of the content to be way too explicit for her age group.

I'm very thankful for the opportunity for me and Future FBI to review Discovery Girls.  It is a nationally distributed magazine designed for girls 8-13 years old.  When they put together an issue, they travel to a different state and choose 12 girls to be their "Discovery Girls" and they work with the girls to put together that issue of the magazine.  I love the fact that they get everyday, ordinary girls!  The girls submit writings on certain topics and are used in the photos!

My daughter and I were sent the most current issue of the magazine, the Survival Guide Collector's Edition, and the book Fab Girls Guide to Friendship Hardship.  I really enjoyed reading the articles and looking over the awesome photos that were taken of the girls.  I even enjoyed taking some of the quizzes they had.
As much as you appreciate my "aged" opinion, I thought you might like to read the review my daughter wrote.

"Thank you to Discovery Girls for sending me these magazines and the book to review.  I really like reading what other girls my age do for hobbies, and learning other things about them.  I liked that the magazine pictures were of real girls, with braces and glasses.  Not everyone is perfect or has the perfect body, and I love that this magazine shows that.  The quizzes in the magazine are really fun, and I found out that I'm a saver, not a spender, which was a surprise to everybody!  Reading the most embarrassing moments section was funny and it reminded me that everybody has times like that.  Looking over the Survival Guide was fun because they had photos from the last 10 years and even some updates on some of the girls. Reading about the interns was cool too.  While I am still reading the book, I have enjoyed taking the quizzes to find out how my friendships really rate, and I realize that friendship should be a gift, and not a gag gift.  Well, that is my review.  I loved Discovery Girls, and will be asking for a subscription.  The articles were clean, which made Mama and Daddy very happy, and it kept my attention.  I'd recommend it for any tween and even teens!"  Review courtesy of Future FBI.
