This is Book #3 of the "Angelwings" series. Doing some research, I found that Books 1 and 2 are entitled Friends Everywhere and Little Creatures. In On Her Own, the Little Angel of Independence must help a girl named Elena become self-reliant in order to earn feathers for his wings. Elena always takes her stuffed giraffe Kathy with her wherever she goes, but the toy keeps her from making friends her own age. So what can the angel do to teach Elena that it is all right to grow up? Over the years, there has been great deal of popular interest in angels, including television shows like Highway to Heaven and Touched by an Angel. Those who accept the Bible believe in the existence of angels and understand that they are "ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation" (Hebrews 1:14). However, beyond this, the Bible just does not say very much at all about the present activities of angels. Some of the ideas in this book, such as how angels "earn their wings" (remember Clarence in It's a Wonderful Life?), are taken from human traditions rather than from the Bible. However, recognizing that these books are obviously fictional, it appears that many good character traits are encouraged in them. In the back of the book, numbers 4-6 in the series are listed, One Leap Forward, Give and Take, and No Fair. Barnes and Noble's website also gives No. 7, April Flowers, up to No. 16, Hang in There.
