Without further ado, we present the Guardian Angel Kids Growing Up June 2012
carefree days of childhood invokes memories of lazy days of summer vacation
filled with days of swimming at the town pool. It was the central social point
of the neighborhood and the excitement of the day would then flow onto our cul-de-sac (after the children of the neighborhood ate
their respective suppers) where there was always a stick ball game going on
until the single street light flickered on. Quickly we would change gears and
switch to playing flashlight tag. My mother, always an avid reader, made sure
her children read each and every day and to this day we all have instilled the
same love of reading with our own children. Without lapsing in our reading
skills throughout the summer we were always well prepared with our studies. The
days appeared endless and before you knew it, it was time for back to school
love of reading has led me to the path of writing for children and
Editor-in-Chief of Guardian Angel Publishing, for which I’m joyful for and proud
