Review and giveaway (closed): Discovery Girls Fab Guides


Congrats to my winner: skgaff
I've written a couple of posts about Discovery Girls- you can find those here and here. But to catch you all up, here's a bit about Discovery Girls:
Discovery Girls is a national magazine aimed at girls between the ages of 8 and 13. Our mission is to inspire and encourage girls to be more confident and resilient and help them deal with those difficult situations that all girls run into growing up. We give them advice and wholesome content addressing everything from peer pressure, to hairstyles, to future careers. 

Most importantly, much of our content comes from the girls themselves. Their embarrassing moments, their questions answered and statistics gathered from their answers to our questions, polls and surveys. All this content helps connect them to each other and realize they're all going through the same thing in their own unique way.

We also feature real girls on the cover and in every issue. We choose 12 girls from a specific state to inspire our readers, and we never put celebrities on our covers!
In addition to the great monthly Discovery Girls magazine, Discovery Girls also has other products, including the Fab Girls Guides books.   Here's a bit about these books:
The middle school years—and the growing pains and social turmoil that come along with them—can be one of the most difficult times in a girl’s life. Many tween girls depend on friends and family to provide guidance and support, but no one has all the answers all the time. That’s why we created the Discovery Girls Fab Girls Guide book series—to give tweens easy access to simple, practical advice that will help them survive middle school and emerge stronger, more confident, and more resilient.

In Friendship Hardship, girls find out how to deal with problems in their friendships, and how to make—and keep—true friends.
Sticky Situations is all about the secrets to dealing with more than 70 of life’s trickier moments.
In Getting Your Questions Answered, girls get advice on school, boys, family, friends, and more from Discovery Girls’ popular columnist, Ali.
And in Getting Through Tough Times, they read inspiring true stories written by real girls just like themselves.

I am such a fan of these books and think they need to be on every young girl's bookshelf. They're designed for girls ages 8 and up. The books do such a nice job of addressing real life problems with direct, honest answers and advice.  Everything is presented in a simple, easy-to-read fashion, with nice graphics and pictures throughout.

And I have good news! One of you will win this great set of books. Open to US mailing addresses only, please.
