I previewed the magazine then I shared it with Sammie. I had Sammie read through BYOU girls magazine when it arrived to enable our review. I wanted her honest opinion to share her point of view along with mine. Now onto the review of BYOU girls magazine.

I gave Sammie the chance to read through BYOU magazine on a lovely spring day outside. I asked Sammie what were some of her favorite features in the BYOU magazine.

There are B-Smart games & brain teasers, but one of Sammie’s favorite articles was the Star guide, astrological star signs.

  • Pro’s 
  • Lots of good choices of positive fun articles for girl’s reading
  • Plenty of entertaining & fun articles for girl’s reading
  • There was plenty of articles packed into 39 pages ad’s were kept to a minimum
  • High quality photography & high quality glossy paper
  • Girls could take out center page & use as a poster
  • Con’s
  • 1/2 page split between craft project & healthy food ( might be topics to expand on, especially healthy food as girls are getting to the age where they make themselves snacks & meals)

Overall I think BYOU  is a great choice of positive, fun reading for girls & plenty of articles to read through. I highly recommend it. You’ll love the various content that will appeal to most girls 7- 15 years old. The photography & quality of BYOU magazine was high quality, the articles in BYOU magazine well written. Sammie had quite a few favorite articles in the magazine & some articles that didn’t interest her, but her over all thoughts was that she enjoyed it & is looking forward to the next one. Sammie really liked the positive quote  from BYOU magazine & here she is sharing her likes, along with the quote from right in the magazine.
