Book Review + Giveaway: Gabby, God's Little Angel by Sheila Walsh

 ISBN: 978-1400317158

My Review:
My thoughts:  Gabby, God's Little Angel is a delightful children's book that teaches children that God is with them all of the time.  I loved the illustrations and thought the writing was just right for younger children.  I enjoyed both Gabby the little angel and Sophie the little girl.  Gabby and Sophie are the perfect match for each other, both are prone for trouble, but Gabby has a heart of gold and will try her hardest to protect Sophie.

It's very cute and will read well as a great bedtime story.  This is something I was always on the lookout for.  There are lots of great books out there, but I always wanted ones that didn't get my tongue tied up when reading to my boys.  This one doesn't get your tongue tied up as a parent.  It reads easy.  The pictures are big, colorful and eye-catching so as to keep even your busiest child occupied through story-time (I have one of those busy children).  I think Gabby, God's Little Angel is a great read for little girls (and even little boys) with a great message for them as well.

My Rating: 5.0/5.0

About the Book:
This first book in a delightful new series offers a comforting message for young readers-God loves you very much and is always watching over you!

What little girl wouldn't 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 God's 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).

I would read it to my son! I homeschool him with a Christian based program and this is one of the lessons that I am teaching him right now, that God is all around us, all the time :)

My neighbors friend was over with her daughter the other day and let her see the book to see if she liked it. She became so excited with the pictures and her mother was smiling so I just gave it to the little girl-she loved it too much.
