Did you know that angels of all kinds are everywhere? “Some are big, some are tiny. They’re all so bright and very shiny.” This lyrical, breezy, and nondenominational picture book introduces children and adults to a magical place which radiates warmth, love, and caring throughout its colorful and delicate pages. With its rich paintings, readers are transported through many colorful scenes, places and seasons to see how angels work behind the scenes, weaving their graces throughout the world.
Through Angels, readers can experience a world of gentle wonder, beauty, and comfort that makes this a perfect bedtime story. “Angels, angels, always near, protecting you, my special dear!”
This delightful hardcover children’s picture book is the perfect gift for your little angel. Make sure your fill in the special dedication page at the front: “To my favorite angel … With love from …”
Angels contains beautiful full-page illustrations by Flavia Weedn that are delicate and old-fashioned. With its simple yet elegant rhyming captions, your child is sure to start “reading” this book on their own after having it read to them a few times.
This book shares the reassuring message that angels are everywhere, looking out for us all. Angels is sure to become a favorite with your little one.
