A lot would depend on the aiming method she is using. If she is
using the point of the arrow for a sighting device, then order full
length arrows,(28 inches) as this will bring her point on distance down
to a managable number. The shorter the arrow the farther away the
target will have to be. Say she is shooting from ten yards and putting
the point of the arrow on the bulls eye and the arrow impacts eight
inches high. As the distance to the target increases the impact will be
increasingly lower until at a particular distance it will hit the
center of the target. Of course this is assuming that her form is
correct. Once the point on distance is determined, she can "gap shoot"
at various distances.
If she is shooting instintively the extra length will not be a
detriment to accuracy, and you can always trim them later.

"what length arrow should a 4ft. 10 inch 10 year old girl use for
the sentry youth recurve bow? I know longer is better, but not sure...
