About The Author
Alexis York Lumbard is a storyteller and children’s book author. With a B.A. in Religious Studies from George Washington University, it is her sincere hope to bring the wisdom and beauty of the world’s religions to the eager and gifted minds of young children.

A Heavenly Picture Book For Children
This is a beautiful rhyming picture book about angels. The rhyming text is very simple and easy to read. Each page has three or four words and a beautiful full-page illustration.

Angels are everywhere and they watch over everything. They are always near and they protect us at all times. This is the message that this book shares with children.

The simple text and beautiful illustrations come together to make a book that will be treasured by children and parents alike.

My Thoughts
This book was written for young children ages two to four. I think this would be a perfect book to share with a child at bedtime. It would also be excellent to read when a child is ill or afraid. The text is so simple, a child will soon have the words memorized.

This is a non-denominational book that shows how angels are always working behind the scenes. I really like this book and plan to give a copy to my granddaughter who is 18 months old. I think her mother will enjoy reading it to her for years to come.

My Rating: 5 Stars Out Of 5

FYI ~ I received a complimentary print copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair review.
