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.
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.
