Discovery Girls Magazine + collectors edition + Book set ***CLOSED!!!***



Discovery Girls magazine is far from your usual pre-teen magazine. It is very age-appropriate! It is something you would actually want to get your child.. that isn't so well-- stuck up! They talk about way more than fashion and makeup. Not that they don't talk a little about it, but I guess what I mean to say is it is not solely what they talk about. They touch on so much. Very useful stuff your daughter needs to know. What’s appropriate for a 17-year-old is often too mature for a 9-year-old. Growing up can be a confusing time for a young girl. There are so many challenges, some of which include, embarrassing momnets, siblings, parents, school.. and that's not all. I like how the magazine has real girls, and shows them smiling and happy and it is also diverse. One issue, the collectors issue shows a flip back of the most important things they touched on through the 10 years of the publication. I found an article about a little girl who was close to her Nana that passed away and it brought tears to my eyes. My Nana also passed away a few years ago. Even though I am 28 I can relate to the little girls emotions. Giana was only 3 when this happened. But I appreciated the article because it talked about healthy ways of dealing with a tragic issue such as death.  In addition, their bodies are changing and there aren't many magazines geared towards teaching our kids things they might not want to talk to mom and dad about! Discovery Girls is a national magazine aimed at girls between the ages of 8 and 13. Their mission is to inspire and encourage girls to be more confident and resilient and help them deal with those difficult situations that all girls run into growing up. We give them advice and wholesome content addressing everything from peer pressure to fashion, friendship to future careers.
Look inside one of the books for yourself!
Their first issue was published in fall 2000, and as of 2011 Discovery Girls now features two magazines, the original edition titled Discovery Girls for ages 8 and up along with now their new Discovery Girls Middle-School Edition for ages 11 and up. The magazine features 12 girls from each state who are not professional models. Discovery Girls also covers the Provinces and territories of Canada. Discovery Girls' motto is "created by girls, for girls".

 Most importantly, much of our content comes from the girls themselves. Their embarrassing moments, their answered questions and statistics gathered from their responses to our questions, polls and surveys are all featured in every issue. All this content helps connect them to each other and realize they're all going through the same thing in their own unique way. They also feature real girls on the cover and in every issue. We choose 12 girls from a specific state to be our "Discovery Girls" and we then travel to that state to hold a two-day photo shoot! These girls inspire our readers, and we never put celebrities on our covers! The website is also loaded with fun stuff for her to do, like quizzes. The website also features a blog and I was tickled to find a post about a recent trip/photoshoot in Alabama!

They sent me their most recent issue and a 4-book Fab Girls Guide set to review!





What did Giana think?



Well- I usually interview her... but she is at a friends house today.  I can speak for her, when I say; she loved this magazine. Every time I turned around, she was reading it. We keep our magazines in the bathroom, and she is just sitting on the toilet, lid closed with the light on reading it. I'm like; "Baby, you can read it in the living room!" LOL!

1 complimentary year subscription to the magazine (a $20 value!)
