GAP Family Blog welcomes Lynda Burch, owner and publisher of Guardian Angel Kids Ezine.
Thank you for visiting with us, Lynda. Can you tell us what Guardian Angel Kids Ezine is, please?
Lynda: The monthly ezine is a way for kids to experience a hands-on computer interactive magazine to read, learn, and play games.
What was your inspiration behind the magazine?
Lynda: My granddaughter at two could play online games on nationally recognized sites, but could have twenty or more pop-up ads get in the way of the fun. I thought that they don’t need that interference of companies trying to sell them products. They just want to play the games. So I wanted to provide that venue and also provide a site for our books, characters, authors, and artists to be shared with an audience.
What makes GAK appeal to kids?
Lynda: Playing the games, reading the stories and poems, watching the videos, doing the activities, and interacting are great ways to entertain kids.
What makes GAK appeal to their parents?
Lynda: It is educational. It offers free entertainment. It is ecologically sound—no trees destroyed here. There are even parent/teacher articles.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about Guardian Angel Kids?
Lynda: I hope that kids and parents take advantage of this free tool for fun and learning.
Readers: be sure to visit the electronic magazine’s site often for fun, safe, interactive, and always free entertainment for your children. The brand new May 2012 issue, Proud to be an American, is available now!
