Overview

A picture-book edition of Glenn Beck’s tale of family, resilience, and love across distance, following in the footsteps of his #1 New York Times bestselling The Christmas Sweater.

Adapted from the newest Glenn Beck release, Snow Angel is the story of two siblings, who yearn for new toys and a fun vacation, but their parents are struggling and cannot give them what they want. Though their disappointment is obvious, their grandmother tells them the story of a young girl whose family also went through hard times. Before her father has to leave to find work, he makes a snow angel, telling his little girl that no matter where he is, there will always be an angel looking out for her and her mother, helping the brother and sister realize the true meaning of family.

Ultimately, it's a story of family, resilience, and knowing that the ones you love are never too far away.

Editorial Reviews

This adaptation of Glenn Beck's latest Christmas book offers a message about the omnipresent closeness of families.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Serving as an accessory to the author's adult novel of the same name, this picture book depicts a childhood memory addressed in the longer work's plot. The story kicks off with two disappointed siblings who are tired of eating macaroni and cheese every night and bored with spending evenings with Grandma as their parents work long hours to make ends meet. The digital illustrations lack movement but emphasize the characters' emotions. Grandma tells the children the story of her own difficult childhood and the meaningful time when her father taught her to make snow angels. The text is heavy-handed and the many issues it raises are glossed over or too simply resolved. Faith in family restored, the children bring their parents breakfast in bed, uncooked macaroni and cheese because they cannot use the stove. (It is unclear who lit the fire for them in the fireplace downstairs.) This publicity piece will appeal strictly to fans of the author's work.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA
