New Moon Girls is the unique, ad-free, global magazine and fully-moderated social network for learning and creative self-expression. Best quality content by/for grades 3-8 explores the world and develops empathy and confidence. Frequent Parents' Choice and Golden Lamp winner.
This is an excellent choice to give as a gift subscription to your niece, daughter's friend or any girl 8-14 yrs old. We use it for birthday gifts. Supported only by subscriptions due to the no AD policy I applaud this approach.
I love this magazine for my tween girl!! It's got the kind of wholesome content that American Girl magazine has but without the ever-present push to buy products. It has excellent thought provoking stories, great for parents trying to raise a girl in today's materialistic, big-on-bling, low-on-substance world! An excellent alternative to most of the "teen magazines" that many teens end up looking at. I think my 11 year old daughter has much better things to do with her time & mind than to lay around swooning over clothes, makeup & boys from tv shows.
I first came across this magazine years ago when it was a fledgling publication. I was so impressed that I filed it in my memory banks and years later, when my daughter was about 6, I bought her a subscription. She's thirteen and still loves it. This magazine is ad-free and is written by girls, for girls. They promote open-minded exploration of ideas and values. And they explore all sorts of topics girls are interested in, everything from friendships to menstruation to zits to human rights to natural resources -- all without ads or stupid stereotypes. I highly recommend this magazine and often give it as a gift! My only regret: they don't publish a similar magazine for boys! Most boys mags are just trendy trash.
