Overview

"INSPIRATIONAL AND HEARTWARMING...Anyone who was ever once a child will enjoy it--and so will those who are still children, or children at heart."
--AngelWatch Perhaps because children have not yet learned to disbelieve what their eyes, ears, and hearts tell them, they have a special closeness with angels. After the publication of Joan Wester Anderson's New York Times bestseller Where Angels Walk, people urged her to write a book entirely about children's experiences with angels--and sent along their own personal narratives as witness to these miraculous visitations.
An Angel to Watch Over Me is the result: a wonderful collection of stories that documents and describes extraordinary encounters between children and celestial visions. There's the grandmotherly angel who consoles an ailing girl in a hospital emergency room, and the angel who helps a Texas boy lose his fear of thunderstorms. There are angels who combat darkness, bring glad tidings, and offer comfort. Angel prayers, mothers' memories, beautiful illustrations, and some heavenly hugs also grace these pages. For those who read this wondrous book, angels become a warm and loving presence in everyday life, a blessed part of being.
"A GEM FOR BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN...I love this book."
--Antoinette Bosco
"MIRACULOUS...Poems, songs, and other angelic messages dot the text along with sweet drawings."
--Booklist

The recent flood of best sellers detailing celestial encounters suggests that angels may soon give Bigfoot and Elvis a run for their money. Anderson's previous report, Where Angels Walk (Ballantine, 1993), sold more than 250,000 copies.
