Default Strings, stiffness and tension for an 8 year old

Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and would greatly appreciate some advice regarding regarding strings and the best tension for my 8 year old who has been playing for four years. I am considering getting the Yonex ezone lite which has a stiffness rating of 65 and stringing it with Babolat natural gut. Not sure what the best tension would be for her age and everyone I talk to has a different opinion. She currently plays with a APD in 26 inches which has a stiffness of 63 according to the specs on tennis warehouse. From what I have gathered from reading other posts here, it seems that she would be better off in an adult lite frame. I was able to get her to consider Yonex over Babolat because she loves Ana Ivanovic and Maria Kirilenko! Thanks in advance!
