“[Discovery Girls is] a magazine for tweens that is age-appropriate and filled with wisdom! It acknowledges the unique challenges of these years, gives advice from tweens to tweens, and offers ideas on how to bounce back from embarrassments and disappointments….I am thrilled by your commitment to letting girls be girls and to building their resilience.”

—Ken Ginsburg, MD,
author of A Parent's Guide to Building Resilience in Your Children and Teens

I have kept this magazine in my office for many years, recommending it to my patients without hesitation.”

From Parents:

I am so pleased to have discovered your magazine! Your magazine offers real perspective on friendships and relationships. It feels and sounds sincere. The stories written by girls do seem truly written by girls themselves. Thanks for creating a magazine that [my 9-year-old daughter] can understand, relate to and enjoy.

“[My 9-year-old daughter ] has been reading DG magazine for about a year now. We have fun flipping through the pages together. Today's girls have so many different sides to them—funny, smart, stylish, committed to their family and community and more… .I love the way DG addresses all of these wonderful things that make our girls who they are. Keep up the good work!”

“My 10-year-old just received two of your magazines. I read it first to see if it was appropriate for her and I am happy to say that it was! [She] shared the magazine with her older sister and they both loved it, especially the quizzes, contests, pet pages, advice column, and the girls featured.”

Discovery Girls helps girls to be happy about how they look and also to feel good about themselves. I think every mother and daughter all over the world should read this magazine. It is 100% pure good!”

“My 10-year-old daughter loves your magazine! As a former middle school principal, I commend you for your efforts in helping girls discover and appreciate what makes them unique. I think parents should read each Discovery Girls issue along with their daughters. The shared experience will help us all understand the changing world in which our daughters must grow up.”

“My 11-year-old daughter has been a subscriber for about 1½ years and absolutely adores Discovery Girls. She reads it cover to cover the day it arrives in the mail. As a parent, I like it because it is completely appropriate for the tween girl….It's nice for girls who are beginning to worry about body image to see normal girls just like them in the pages of a national magazine.”
