We all remember those ackward stages between being a little kid and being an adult! The braces, the bad hair cuts, the embarrassing moments. It would’ve been so nice as a young tween girl to have a magazine that understood all of that. Girl nowadays are super lucky! They have great magazines like Discovery Girls!
My daughter has been reading Discovery Girls since she was about 8 years old. Everytime her magazine comes in the mail she pratically races me to the mailbox to grab it out of my hands. Discovery Girls is a great periodical that teaches girls self-esteem, how to cope with embarassing situations, and tons of other great topics that relate to tweens and as they get older the teen set.
This great magazine empowers girls by sharing stories from other tweens and preteens. You can meet real “Discovery Girls” as the magazine travels the country to learn what teens and tweens are really up to. The magazine shares what their dreams are, what their fears are, and of course what their most embarrassing moments are too! These sections really help girls relate to the fact that a lot of other girls out there are having the same feelings as the girl reading this great read.
My daughter’s favorite part of Discovery Girls is “Ask Ali.” This is a great advice column where girls write and ask questions about things like becoming a vegetarian, how old is to old to sleep with stuffed animals, friend drama, and whatever they want to learn about. Ali’s advice is uplifting, honest, and let’s girls know how awesome they are and they can conquer anything standing in their way!
As a mom, Discovery Girls is a great magazine that I know is sending the RIGHT message to little girls. It gives them tips on fashion and makeup, but doesn’t make them feel that they are inadequate if they don’t have it on. They have the perfect blend of building girls up and giving advice on how to look your best, how to make friends, and how to survive those ackward tween/teen years. I know that when my daughter reads Discovery Girls, she is learning very valuable lessons and enjoying knowing she’s not alone!
Discovery Girls recently started adding books to their collections. They have a great series of four books called the “Fab Girl Guide to.” This great series is introduced by Carmen and Dallas Fabrulezzanio, aka the Fab Girls. They are twins that couldn’t be anymore different. Adding these characters to narrate the series is a neat way to tie the whole collection of stories together.
I had a chance to review the “Fab Girls Guide to Getting Through Tough Times.” This most recent book in the series covers the hard topics girls face like getting cyberbullied, being the new kid, divorce, and parents losing their jobs. The best thing about this series, is that each of the topics are written by girls that actually went through it themselves. I believe this gives the Discovery Girls reader the opportunity to see it through someone else’s eyes and connect with them. This does an amazing job letting girls know they aren’t along, and other girls have gone through issues they are going through as well. This is so much better received than an adult telling girls they have been through the same things when they were younger because these girls are going through it now!
Other books in this amazing series include Sticky Situations, Getting your Questions Answered, and Friendship Hardship. If a girl has been through it Discovery Girls has it covered in the “Fab Girls Guide to” series.
