My daughter is growing up so fast, I cannot believe that she is already eight years old, in second grade and reading up a storm… What happened to my little baby, it is amazing how fast time flies! We were very fortunate to be able to check out the latest issue of the American Girl magazine the special Jukt/Aug 2013 issue, with this issue they are celebrating their super summer issue. I was excited to check it out (yes I am just a kid at heart) with my daughter. My daughter just loved flipping through the magazine,(she did more than flip though.. she read the entire magazine!) There were so very many things she loved in the magazine.
She loved the various activities. And I loved that this magazine was age appropriate, it was filled with great info and things tweens like my daughter will love. The magazine helps boost self-esteem for these young ladies, you are special and we know it. It encourages the kids to be imaginative and creative. My daughter just loves art and this magazines crafts speak to her, and she can’t wait to try them. This is not a one and done magazine, after my daughter read through the magazine she picked it up over and over to check it out again and again.
We loved the 13 tips for packing a suitcase, tips we could really use since we travel so very much. There is also a great new comic in the magazine now, very cute.
