Summary: Awesome AG Magazine!
Comment: I have the Dec. Issue (awesome!). I has a cute seal poster and how to make these little polar bears and penguins that taste like peppermint. There is also a mealtime quiz and is really fun. I like it a lot.

Summary: Great, appropriate reading
Comment: I subscribed to this magazine from around age 7 to age 12, and also got my hands on many back issues during that time.

It is a wonderful, advertising-free magazine with everything from advice, to crafts, to parties (yes, they are kind of heavy on that).

They oftentimes offer excerpts form books from American Girl Press - but they are excerpts which are useful in their own right, not just getting you to buy the book. They are such things as a few crafts out a a craft book, a quiz or two from a quiz book, and that sort of thing. I also highly recommend these books, but that is beside the point.

They interview a lot of girls in special circumstances or doing good for their community, anything from girls to volunteer to girls who were adopted and talk about that, to disabled girls. The stories are always age-appropriate and try to inspire readers to do good fir their world.

They also have much advice on a variety of subjects, from things that readers write in to advice from the writers. They cover such topics as difficult friendships, moving, braces, school trouble, pets, whatever - all kinds of relevant issues.

They also offer advice on things to do - they often have themed 'parties' where they offer activities, food, etc. for fun slumber parties. While I never threw one of these elaborate extravaganzas, much of it can be adapted for girls having fun with friends or family. They also offer crafts, recipes, and the like for other things to do.

When I got the magazine, I can count on one hand the number of celebrity interviews there were, and they were always short and not the focus of the magazine.

Also, there are always short fictional stories, contests, reader letters, and miscellaneous things, perfect for most preteen and slightly younger girls.

It is a very white magazine, though. Although they certainly make an effort to choose diverse models and the like, it still comes off very white.

The art is gorgeous, and I highly recommend this.

Summary: haven't gotten it yet
Comment: Haven't gotten this subscription yet. Apparently it takes about 6 weeks to get. We've gotten this magazine before and my girls love it. Very clean and age appropriate.
