Meet the Author
Jane Cowen-Fletcher began work on BABY ANGELS after her daughter, Jo, was born. She says, "Some babies, like Jo, seem to need more than one angel. As she grew and began to go wherever her boundless curiosity led her, she put her angels through their paces." BABY ANGELS, she adds, "is intended to say to its small listeners, 'Oh Baby! You are loved, loved, loved!'" Jane Cowen-Fletcher lives in South Berwick, Maine.

A great and inspirational book about the closeness of babies and angels.
I bought this book before I was even pregnant because it was so beautiful. My 14 month old daughter picks this book out of all of her many books and loves to have it read to her or she just looks at the pictures. She calls angels 'Doo-doos'. I think she really believes there are baby angels watching over her as when she gets hurt, she says 'Doo-doos'.
Every time we read this book at our house our kids smile from ear to ear. They like the angels protecting that adorable baby girl. They notice everything from the wall paper to the fact that the more mischief the baby gets into the more angels rush to her side. An absolute must have if you have children. The perfect baby shower gift!!!!!!!
My son, now 15 months old, has been bringing this book to me to read to him ever since he could pick up his books. He loves the pictures and the rhymes. I love to read it to him, too. The first time I opened the book and read through it, it brought tears to my eyes. A 'must have.'
