I wanted to share with you a magazine I discovered first, in the library, that is for girls ages 8 to approximately 12. About a year ago, I brought Discovery Girls home to Lexi, just to see if she would enjoy it. She devoured it cover to cover. We subscribed to it and she has been enjoying it ever since. I also read it cover to cover to keep up with her age range. I think it would make a great Christmas present for a young girl in your life, that would last all year long. It comes out six times a year and this is the December/January 2010 issue, just out. Remember, you can click on any picture to enlarge.
Some of the articles in this month's issue are Make New Friends....But Keep the Old! Girls in Lexi's age range seem to struggle to do this without friends getting jealous. We have had a huge issue with this, this past school year. Lexi wants and does, make new friends, and she has one friend that has major issues with it.
Another great article....Are You Too Worried About What Other People Think? We all have issues with this occasionally.
There are always many light-hearted articles too such as Embarrassing Moments....too funny! Each magazine also has book reviews, fashion, crafts and this one also has a story about the rising young star Justin Bieber.
Do I have you interested yet? If so, you can go here to subscribe or just read more about the magazine. Lexi gives it a 10 on a 1-10 scale.
