Discovery Girls Magazine







Do you know a girl between the ages of 8 and 12 years old? If so...you have to read this.

My daughter is still under one, but I know that when she gets older I want her to have positive role models. 

Positive role models can be difficult to find in today's society. I feel bombarded with things that I don't want my children to learn or know about yet...but these things are put out there on children's shows and movies, and magazines so even when I don't allow my children to watch/read these things, many other children already have. Giving children a positive alternative can help them feel more confident about not following the crowd.

I know when I was a little girl I read teen magazines... always thinking that I needed to be "that" girl, because if I wasn't than I was nothing. Well, I want to tell you about a different magazine, Discovery Girls. 


Discovery Girls is an age appropriate magazine that focuses on more positive, self esteem building, articles and articles that really relate to a girl 8-12 years old. 

I love that when I flip through the magazines I don't see ads for jeans, shoes, or other "must have" items- and no provocative, skin showing, clothing either. In fact the only ad that I remember seeing in the August/September '11 issue was for a toothbrush!

 I love that there are REAL girls in the magazine- ones that could live just down the block from you! That's right...these are everyday girls, not models hired to be in the magazine, not celebrities. Each issue has 12 girls who help write articles, appear in the magazine, and help come up with ideas for the magazine- all of whom have been selected from applications from Discovery Girls readers. Now that is cool. 

Discovery Girls is published 6 times a year, and a year's subscription costs about $19.95... well worth the peace of mind knowing the little girl you are purchasing the subscription for will be reading articles that are uplifting and supportive of who she is!

This magazine would make an amazing gift that would continue to give all year long, and possibly life-long. Discovery Girls website also has some amazing online advice and articles as well, so be sure to check it out.


I was provided with samples of the books and magazine, Discovery Girls, to facilitate my review. I received no monetary compensation and all opinions are my own. You may or may not have the same experience and/or opinions of the products as I have.
