Flip Flap Floodle

jpg Flip cover color  1

This is a tale about Flip; a little yellow fellow who has a musical talent and a never ending energy that keeps him believing in himself.  While a devious act is committed against Flip, in spite of his demise, he never loses hope. 

His Mother, who fears for his safety, gives the villain a well deserved thrashing.  But, the real empowerment of the story is Flip, who never loses faith in his special talent, or in himself. 

This cute, quirky, and a little bit scary story, has some nurturing life lessons for children.  It shows friendship, faith, love and entertainment among its pages.  I give Flip Flap Floodle, written and illustrated by Joan Y. Edwards, 5 ***** stars for bright engaging illustrations, and content that is sure to amuse young children. 

 This book has been reviewed by Susan Hornbach, author of children’s literature

Angel Donor Named Best Children's Book in the Preditors and Editors Poll of 2012

January 17, 2013 –

Children's author and Editor-in-Chief of My Light Magazine announced her third book, Angel Donor, came in first place for children's books in the 2012 Preditors and Editors Reader's Poll (P&E Poll). "I've been truly humbled by all the support the book received during the polling process," Jennifer Gladen stated.  "I hope this recognition helps spread the word about the book, but more importantly the cause behind the book."

Angel Donor, published by Guardian Angel Publishing and illustrated by Samantha Bell, is a picture book about a little girl in need of a liver transplant. It is based on her daughter who was born with liver disease and needed a transplant. "I wanted to create a book that children in the same situation can identify with," Gladen said. "It had to be a book that explains what the children go through, but ends in hope. I often yearned for a book to read to my daughter when she had questions about her disease."

When Angel Donor had been nominated for the 2012 P&E Poll, Gladen was thrilled. The poll is an Internet poll on books of all categories. It is designed to help authors gain exposure for their work and help readers discover the newest books out there. As taken from the P&E website, "As part of our overall effort to assist and promote writers, we are proud to present the annual Preditors and Editors Reader's Poll".  P&E is also well known for their vigilance in warning authors about publishing scams.

For Immediate Release

Children’s Ezine Guardian Angel Kids: Sewing – January 2013 Issue

Publisher, Lynda S. Burch remembers fondly as a young girl how her grandmother, mother, and aunt had a quilting frame suspended from the ceiling in their basement. Burch and her relatives sat around it for hours, busily quilting away on their assigned sections. No TV or other noise, only the quiet sound of the quilter’s voices chatting. Time spent here was not only valuable in honing one’s sewing skills, but intertwined the family bond, much like the precise and tight stitching from each quilter to produce a beautiful quilt to be cherished for generations to come.

Come explore the world of Guardian Angel Kids through the thought provoking short stories and articles and learn sewing tips along the way. A hemming your pants poetry, Fingers Hats share s the history of thimbles, Calico Corners brings family history to life through quilting, Ribbons tests one’s sewing talents, how Hand Sewing teaches a new way of fun beyond video games, and essential tips for Easy Literacy Activities.
