It’s hard parenting a ‘tween girl.  It’s hard to make sure they know you want to be open and honest with them, and answer all of their questions.  It’s even harder to do it without being silly and laughing.

That’s why the new series of books from Scholastic and the editors of Girls’ Life Magazine is so nice.  They’re bright and colorful, and well written, and my daughter just loves looking through them and reading.  Yes, reading.

The first book, Girls’ Life Head-to-Toe Guide to You is all about the body.  Its features, its changes, and how to care for it from head-to-toe.  The secondbook is Girls’ Life Ultimate Guide to Surviving Middle School.

Again, perfect for my daughter who will move up to Intermediate school as a fifth grader this fall.  Her fear is lockers.  Yes, it’s in there.

Two more books will come out this fall.  But in the meantime you have an opportunity to win a set of these books for yourself!


Two lucky winners will each receive a set of the two Girls’ Guide books. Winner will be notified via email and will need to respond within 24 hours or a new winner will be chosen.
