What little girl wouldnt love her very own guardian angel? Parents and children alike will be won over by this humorous tale of Gabby, a guardian angel in training who has much to learn about taking care of Gods little ones. Her new assignment is to protect a young girl named Sophie, but Gabby soon realizes that watching after Sophie is a bigger challenge than she had expected! After a close call while riding her pony, Sophie learns what the Bible says about guardian angels: He will put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go (Psalm 91:11 ICB).

Tired of Apostasy1 Stars Out Of 5No Biblical TruthSeptember 2, 2016Tired of ApostasyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0It seems like most of the reviewers who gave good marks have gotten the book for free so they could provide a review. Does anyone care that this book is in NO way biblically accurate? Just look at the preview. Are we so into things because it's "cute" or "has a good message" that we have traded in truth for lies? The Bible NEVER says anything about female angels or child/baby angels. This maybe a "cute" story and "cute" illustrations, but don't we have plenty of that already? When it comes to biblical things should we be lying or exaggerating or making it up as we go along to our kids? They have too much fantasy as it is and need truth, and the truth is sometimes our "guardian angels" do not keep us from all harm. Why? The book doesn't explain, but the Bible does. Start with Hebrews 12:1-13 and let The Lord lead you from there.
MommyMendezMt. Airy, MDAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fun, lots of character, and great lessonMay 18, 2012MommyMendezMt. Airy, MDAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
iamjenaiManila, PhilippinesAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Angel Book!April 22, 2012iamjenaiManila, PhilippinesAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Gabby, 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.
SelabearFort Collins, COAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Sweet book for little girlsJanuary 15, 2012SelabearFort Collins, COAge: 25-34Gender: femaleValue: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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!

EszterEuropeAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The quality of the book is excellentDecember 19, 2011EszterEuropeAge: 25-34Gender: femaleThe 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.
