JEREMIAH LUCKY AND THE GUARDIAN ANGEL is a really lovely book! I love the way author Jane Freeman describes the details of Jeremiah’s daily life and his relationship with his mother. Angus McDermit, Jeremiah’s guardian angel, is a delightful character. I think many children will relate to Jeremiah in many ways. I can’t wait to read more chapter books in this series and get to know these characters even better!

The only thing lucky about Jeremiah Lucky is his name.  But on his way to school one day, he finds a lucky penny; and that's when things start to change for him. After realizing he'd forgotten his library books and his field-trip permission slip, a peculiar little man appears and announces that he's Jeremiah's guardian angel.  Angus McDermit, as the angel is called, helps Jeremiah make good choices while coming to understand and accept that things in life don't always have to be perfect, even himself. Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel is suggested for youth ages 7-10 and skillfully addresses such issues as latchkey children, dealing with death and loss, and kids being raised by a single parent.  This book is a quick and easy read and is recommended for classroom reading and for home and school libraries.

Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite Jane Ellen Freeman has written a lovely story for preteens called Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel. After Jeremiah’s father died, he tries to be more responsible by helping his mother with the chores. His mother, a nurse, often leaves before Jeremiah wakes and returns after he gets home from school. The eight-year-old misses his father so much, and worries about his mother that he begins to forget minor things. While at school, a very tiny man with a red mustache and a shiny bald spot on his head appears out of nowhere and tells Jeremiah that he is his guardian angel. Angus McDermit’s duty is to watch over him, and Jeremiah soon begins to tell this odd-looking man his problems. He knows his mother misses his dad too, and wonders why he had to die and leave them. Kids display their emotions in many ways after losing a parent. Jane Ellen Freeman creates a thought provoking portrayal of this in Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel. She shows how Jeremiah matured by his thoughtful actions at home, and how forgetful he was with certain school activities. He worried a lot, but did not think the adults around him noticed. The story is also educational as the author included a very informative tour of a fort, which I enjoyed as much as Jeremiah. Her characters are nice, and Angus was definitely a comfort and gentle guiding light in Jeremiah’s life. I recommend this book to preteens, knowing they will enjoy it.
