Everyone can recall the wonder and enchantment of childhood imagination; where closet doors separate bedrooms from magical lands, couch cushions become a refuge from shark infested carpets below, flying to the moon is a quick errand between nap and dinner time, and the hero always wins in the end. For many children, these adventures are buried under worries of whether they will eat today or where they will sleep at night.
