Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
From the author of Strega Nona and Bill and Peet comes this beautiful board book about everyday angels in the life of a child. The Good Morning Angel wakes us up and gets us moving on our way. The Good Night Angel tucks us into bed at night and guarantees sweet dreams as we sleep. The Reading Angel brings a favorite book to read at story time in school. The Playtime Angel waits on the playground, eager to push our swings higher and higher. Children are open to the possibilities of things they cannot see, much more so than adults. This title will assist adults in introducing angels to children and giving them a positive explanation for these guardian beings that exist unseen. The artwork depicts these being as child-like, with bare feet and baseball caps. These pages are excerpts from the original title Angels, Angels Everywhere which was published by Putnam in 2005. Author dePaola was the United States nominee in 1990 for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in illustration. He has been recognized by the American Library Association for a Caldecott Honor Book, a Newbery Honor Book, and the 2011 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his "substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children."
