Hey Moms! New Mag for Tween Girls

BYOU Magazine: Be Your Own You is a new mag for tween girls roughing it through the late elementary through middle school years. As you can see from the picture below, my 12 year-old daughter got her fingerprints and her eyes all over my review copy. I'm hoping she absorbed the age-appropriate advice about dealing with mean girls, following her dreams, being a better student and taking care of her personal appearance and health.

The mail-bag page reveals what other girls are thinking and saying about what they read in BYOU.

Fun, quick quizzes help girls sort out who they are, what they like and how they can do better at what they're already doing well.

And what girls' magazine would be complete without beauty tips?

In addition to reading the articles and features, girls can get advice from someone their own age!

Plenty of role models, from girls just like BYOU's readers to successful women, are presented, with stories about what they do and how they do it. Crafts, short fiction, puzzles and humor keep the pages interesting from cover to cover. And as a mother of a tween girl, I like that the articles in my review copy didn't push the envelope. There was nothing edgy or morally questionable. In fact, everything I read supported values that the vast majority of families share.

Sounds like a worthwhile magazine then.

The title is so clever! I love that.

The formatting, from the pics, certainly looks geared towards that niche.
