Are You In Need of a Survival Guide for Your Tween? A Review

The Discovery Girls Magazine’s Survival Guide, a collector’s edition of the past ten years of the magazine, is about to hit the newsstand a week from today!  I was lucky enough to be given an advance copy to aid in my giveaway going on now.  As you can see from the photo above, Miss M. couldn’t wait to get her hands on the magazine as well!  This edition is chock full of advice, quizzes, embarrassing moments, and everything else that the tween in your life loves to read and talk about.  It is very well organized into the sections that Discovery Girls is known for and neatly shows how girls questions and concerns haven’t really changed over the ten years.
What I really appreciated is the background story of Discovery Girls in the making.  It is a truly inspiring story of one mom’s quest to find something better and more meaningful for her daughter to read.  The other part of this edition that I really enjoyed reading was the “Girls Changing the World: Role Model Contest Winners” pages.  These girls are your average girl doing extraordinary things.  What an inspiration for not just a tween to read but truly anyone.  I love that!  Lastly, I loved the lack of ads blasting a counter message to what Discovery Girls is preaching.  If there are any ads, they are truly understated and fit right in.

With this special edition, come two FREE gifts! One is a style guide booklet and the other are stickers.  Miss M ran off with the stickers shortly after I had her pose for her picture!  I remember loving stickers at this age and older so I am sure they won’t last long in any household.  The style guide is a neat item that girls can put in their purse and take with them shopping, etc.  It provides photos of real life girls modeling different “looks” and then shows the different clothes that make up that outfit. Some of the looks are “Preppy Perfect” “Beachy Chic” and “Boho Beat.”  This guide is really like having your own stylist in your pocket!

Overall, I really liked the Survival Guide and recommend it especially to anyone that may be curious about Discovery Girls Magazine but not quite ready to comment to a subscription.  It really is the best of what Discovery Girls has to offer.
