December 2013 Issue of Guardian Angel Kids Now Online

gak 2

What does it mean to have an “Attitude of Gratitude?” That’s our focus in the December 2013 issue of Guardian Angel Kids.

Our featured book this month is Tales from Kensington Forest written and illustrated by Kevin Scott Collier. These three stories–“The Congregation Fundraiser”, “Trial by Fire” and “An Overstayed Welcome”–portray life in the forest with Pastor Pete the prickly porcupine and his bevy of forest friends.

We have two poems for you: “The Giving Fever” by Robert Niven and “Think” by Sarah Varnam. Short stories come to you from Trisha Faye, Evelyn Horan, and Felicity Nisbet; and our non-fiction article this month is “Freedoms Even Kids Have” by Shari L. Klase. In our Parent and Teacher section, Irene S. Roth shares her tips for “Instilling an Attitude of Gratitude” with you this month, too.

Readers will also find links to fun games and activities. Visit us online at to read this and all past issues of Guardian Angel Kids.

We would also like to wish all our readers a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season.
