Check out this month’s edition of Guardian Angel Kids, a free online magazine designed for the healthy and safe entertainment for 2-12 year old children, featuring games, stories and activities from our Guardian Angel books and characters.

Freddy, Hoppie and the Eyeglasses by Michelle Nott is a great way to help your child adjust his or her very first pair of glasses.
Freddy runs late for school, his watch is all blurry, and sometimes his wild answers make his classmates laugh. Using his imaginary friend, Hoppie, Freddy is able to help his mother understand what is going on so she can help.
This adorable and funny book tackles an important subject. Sometimes kids don’t want to tell their parents they can’t see the board or the word in a book as clearly as they used to. That can be a frightening thing. Freddy, Hoppie and the Eyeglasses will not only help young people understand it’s okay to share these kinds of problems with their parents; it also shows them how simple an eye exam and getting glasses can be.
The vivid colors in Robert Lee Beers’ artwork capture your attention–especially the green. There were a lot of nice background details in these pictures: the tiny apples on the tree outside of the school, the student of the month poster in Freddy’s classroom, and the eye chart in Dr. Virens’ office.
This book is a great blend of education and entertainment.

On Friday, I blogged about one of my favorite Easter time stories, Stubby’s Destiny by Dixie Phillips. You can read my review at http://christianchildrensauthors.com/2016/03/18/book-review-stubbys-destiny-by-dixie-phillips/
Who says friends have to be alike? When Mokey skips out an open door at the zoo, he wanders off to find some friends to play with. He doesn’t discover any monkeys, but he does find some new friends who are just as fun to play with, no matter how different they are.
Mokey’s New Friends by Connie Arnold is a wonderful story that celebrates diversity. Though sometimes we are drawn to people who are similar to us, we also find friendship with those who have different likes and abilities than we do. With this charming book, Arnold encourages kids to accept the differences and enjoy the time spent with friends.
Artist Marina Movshina lends her impressive talents to beautifully illustrate this story. From the minute the reader meets Mokey, they will be captivated by the pictures Movshina has painted to bring this story to life.
Kids will enjoy this delightful story over and over again.
