I have a 6 year old and I bought this book at the book fair at my daughter's school because on the front, it said that it was a story about never giving up. This is something my daughter struggles with at times, so I decided to pick it up. She loved it and I loved it. I thought the message was clear, but in a fun positive way. I think its important for parents to read the "A Letter to Parents". I could totally hear the voices in my head when I was reading it and I loved it was attached with a Bible verse. I immediatley went to the computer afterwards to look for other books by Sheila Walsh, as this is the first book I have ever read of hers. I look forward to reading more with my daughter.
Gabby, God's Little Angel is the first angel book I've read to my kids, 6 and 3 years old, and they loved this book so much! The illustrations of angels and matching colors are cute and very nice to look at. The story is simple, can be easily understood by young readers. I liked that there are bible verses in the book and a picture of mom and daughter praying at night. I felt that my kids are now ready for more bible stories after reading this to them. A book I highly recommend to mommies looking for a great book to read to her children.
This book did not disappoint. The illustrations were sweet and the point well made. Kahlen and I enjoyed this one too. It is actually quite amazing to think that God loves each of us so much that He sends his angels to watch over us wherever we go. Kahlen's angel must be just as busy as Gabby these days keeping her out of harm's way. So, thank you NetGalley for providing the book for review, thank you Sheila Walsh for writing the truth in a way that is relevant to me AND my daughter, and most of all, thank you God for protecting us from ourselves and life!
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NetGalley as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
The quality of the book is excellent. It is almost an A4 format, hardcover and lovely illustrations. Even my 4 years old little son enjoyed the story. I had to read him twice. You can see some pages from the book HERE.
My daughter also enjoys it as it has some glitter on the cover, it is pink and easy to read the short yet important story.
Gabby, God's Little Angel is a wonderful Children's Book that will be great read, especially at bedtimes. It will lead to many discussions I'm sure about God and angels with your little ones.
The book paints a wonderful picture of an angel named Gabby, she is described in such a way that children can easily relate to her, she's like a best friend, funny, sweet and loving. The main message I believe is for our children to know that they are very special to God and that He places angels to watch over them and keep them safe. They are never alone. This is a wonderful message for children and adults as well.
I think this is an excellent book for children up 10 years old.
After I received the book, I read it first alone, then with my daughter. She wanted to read it by herself, at 7 years old she read it pretty easily; she only needed help with a few words. She really enjoyed the book and I think she felt pretty special that God places angels to watch over her.
We both found the characters very funny and felt like we could relate to them. The author, Sheila did a wonderful job in presenting a wonderful message about God's love for us.
The illustrations were well done and painted an excellent picture of what was happening in the story.
I am recommending this book for sure to all those who has a special little girl in their lives. She will treasure this book.
