October 2010: Issue #41 – “Amazing Adventurers”!

Dear Amazing Kids!

Welcome to the October, 2010 issue of the Amazing Kids! Online Magazine: “Great Adventurers!”, Issue #41. In this issue we have treated you to a variety of stories on adventurers all over the world and all through history.  Adventure is spread throughout the issue.  Be ready for the thrill in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art and even the book reviews.  Whether you plan to be an explorer or you want to read about adventurers from history, this issue is sure to peak your interest.  Congratulations to all the fantastic youth volunteer staff and interviewees for the great work they did putting this issue together.

Be sure to check out this month’s “Amazing Mentors! Spotlight” interview with Dr. Allen Pastron to learn what its like to be an archaeologist.  It is definitely more than just digging in the dirt in some faraway land.  Going from land to the air, we have an interview with a young aviation enthusiast (an amazing kid pilot!) who shares how he has flown with and interviewed many wartime pilot heroes.   To top it off, we have a video interview with the internationally acclaimed doll designer, Robert Tonner. Visit the worlds of these amazing adventurers.

Our regular features all have a hint of adventure for this issue.  They include: “LOL” (Laugh Out Loud), “Cook Nook”, “Amazing Artists”, “Reviews”, “Interviews”, “Amazing Kids! Adventures!” (formerly known as Global Village), “Sci-Tech Kids!”, “Poetry”, “Word Booster” and “Writer’s Tips.”  Keep sending in your submissions to make our magazine even better! In addition, we have many non-fiction articles and essays about a variety of topics.  Take a look at each section to make sure you don’t miss your favorite subjects!

    Hi Sean,

    I couldn’t find “A Writer’s World” under the October issue’s short stories, but when I did the Search on it, I was able to find it. Is the tab missing under the short stories? I want to share with my friends and family, but I’m not sure how to tell them where to find it.

    Thank you for publishing A Writer’s World and Annabell Goes Green!

    Thanks,

    Allison Stein
