Children’s Ezine Guardian Angel Kids: Historical Fiction – October 2012 Issue

Welcome to the GAK October 2012 Historical Fiction issue.
Historical fiction is a fascinating way of learning about history. Through historical fiction writers intertwine facts with a story line that carries the reader into the past for a journey into a time they have not lived in. Cultures, traditions and human habits often times very different from those of present time making the experience that much more interesting.
The GAK staff invites you to transport yourself through time with the every tall and proud Lady Liberty watching over you. Explore the heart pounding travels of Sybil Ludington, Sarah’s fear of the unknown, and a heart wrenching glimpse of one girl’s survival of the Titanic. Learn the facts of historical fiction and how you can teach your young muses about history through activities.
Visit the writers and illustrators in the Guardian Angel Kids October 2012 issue and enjoy the alluring poetry, stories, articles and activities, www.guardian-angel-kids.com.
