This book has beautiful illustrations and would be a nice gift book for a baptism. My twin daughters were 3 when we first started reading this book. The drawings of the children remind me of Precious Moments. The winds on the children in the picture are tied on with string. The book is very nice for bedtime reading as it has a gentle story. We only read to page 55 and do not cover the Bible references in the last few pages but I plan to discuss those with my daughters when they are older. This book is a nice introduction to God and Christianity. I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale Rewards.
Author Kathleen Long Bostrom, a pastor, has created a delightful book that should last as children grow up. To begin with, children will enjoy the questions about angels, formed in rhymes. Questions include "Are Angels for real," "Do angels have wings" and so on. The second half of the story gives the answers. The back of the book suggests ages 0-5 but I think the text may be two long to keep the attention of toddlers. The text is complemented by whimsical illustrations of children, created by Elena Kucharik, the "Care Bears" artist. Like the Care Bears pictures, these illustrations are softly shaded, gentle and breezy. They match up very well with the rhyming text. As children get a bit older they will appreciate the Bible references in the back. The author lists the scriptures that she gleaned answers from for each question. This should be of interest to parents as well as children! Are Angels for Real is part of the Little Blessings series of books aimed at the preschool audience. Some of the books answer other questions of faith that children might ask, such as who is Jesus or what is prayer. Two board books relate the messages that we should be thankful and that God loves us. There is also a Little Blessings devotional, but it was written by a different author. I think the poetic text and the lovely pictures are enough to make this a good book. The content of the text and the references at the end also make it a great teaching resource for families.
