Children’s Ezine Guardian Angel Kids: Imagination – February 2013 Issue
A stagnate mind squashes the imagination. To keep one’s creativity and imagination flowing it’s essential to explore the unknown and take chances to think outside the box. Imagine for a moment if everyone thought, worked and acted the same way. What a boring world this would be! Read beyond the normal genre you gravitate to, explore the what if’s of everyday life, enjoy nature and soak in the wonders all around you. Challenge yourself on a daily basis and watch your imagination soar to new levels.
Come explore the world of Guardian Angel Kids www.guardian-angel-kids.com through the thought provoking poetry, short stories and articles to expand your imagination and have fun along the way.
To the dedicated GAK readers and contributors after soul searching her own writing career path, Donna McDine has decided to step down as GAK Editor-in-Chief and dedicate more time to her personal writing and book promotional efforts. This decision did not come lightly, but to be able to expand her imagination and efforts she needed to lighten her work responsibilities. McDine shares that it has been a distinct privilege working with Lynda Burch, Donna Shepherd,Kevin McNamee, and Mary Sue Roberts over the course of the last two plus years. And of course, her daily interactions with the valuable contributors, whom without Guardian Angel Kids Ezine would not exist.
McDine wishes you all the very best in imagination and inspiration throughout 2013 and beyond! She looks forward to staying in touch. Please feel free to drop her a line any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Do you have a child with a health challenge? Health challenges are by far the most difficult for most parents, especially if that challenge has to do with a child’s vision. Amblyopia , which usually affects only one eye, causes blurred vision ,and if left untreated can lead to permanent vision problems. This serious condition is the leading cause of blindness in children.
Award-winning author Carmen Swick, in her recent book Patch Land Adventures, Book Two: Camping at Mimi’s Ranch, chronicles in a fun and easy-to-read fashion the importance of wearing an eye patch to help recover from amblyopia which is often called “the lazy eye.”
I love it when authors share about their own challenges for the benefit of others. Carmen Swick’s son suffers from amblyopia ,and she wants to bring awareness so other parents can learn about the importance of wearing a patch. Oftentimes, children are embarrassed to wear a patch due to fear that peers may tease them.
The main character Preston and his dog Beau share their imaginative world of fun with eye patching that will certainly enchant any child facing the same condition of amblyopia. What I like best about Patch Land Adventures, Book Two is that it puts a positive spin on having to wear an eye patch.
Below is my favorite part of this charming story:
“Preston, I just don’t like my patch. It’s not cool.” “Tommy, my mom and dad bought me some cool ones. I got to pick them out. Ask your mom and dad to buy you some cool ones. Now put your eye patch on and let’s go to the park!”
We all may face challenges, but the way we go about dealing with them will determine whether we are victim or victor. Carmen Swick opted to be a victor and reading her book may show you how to overcome your own challenges, whatever they may be.
