From an adult perspective, I think the BYOU Magazine is perfect for girls ages late 7, 8 to maybe age 12. It seems to be geared towards that age girl and may be too young for 13 and older. It is a really nice magazine. It is colorful, has great stories, puzzles, and doesn’t have a lot of ads.

Ava is age 8 and today she just received her first copy. This is what she thinks about the BYOU Magazine:

I liked the BYOU Magazine. I like how it talks about “girl power”. I like learning things and there are facts about things that I didn’t know before. I like giving my opinion and doing quizzes.
