Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2. As Tyler, an African-American boy, and his family decorate their Christmas tree, he asks why all the angels are girls with golden hair and pink skin and never black boys. His parents don't know. He decides to go out every day after school and look for an angel like himself but has no success. Frustrated, he asks the mall Santa, whom he recognizes as the young art student who sometimes baby-sits for Tyler's family, but Carl doesn't know the answer. Then, after the family looks at the Nativity scene at the Christmas Eve service, Tyler wants to know why baby Jesus doesn't look Jewish. His parents can't answer that question, either. On Christmas morning, however, he finds a package with a beautifully carved angel that looks just like him. When he goes to thank Carl for the gift, he asks for a special favor. His Asian, Hispanic, and other friends all want special angels, too. The story is skillfully and sweetly written, and its point is well taken. Radiant watercolors painted in an idealized realistic technique and arranged in double-page spreads show an attractive family in a comfortable home. A thoughtful holiday selection with a theme that can be appreciated all year round.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA

If everyone you know is a blonde girl, maybe you won't relate to this book. But if you have a red-haired child, or a brunette, or a boy, or are Asian...and have wondered why all angels are blonde females...you will feel for this family as they deal with a child's very serious question. The warmth and beauty of the words and pictures will brighten your holiday season. You'll find yourself looking for angels that look a little more like the people in YOUR life. Merry Christmas!

This story provides real life thoughtful questions for adults through the eyes of children. It gives an appropriate sense for children's desire to see themselves reflected in the world around them. I read this story at our school to 3-5 year olds. It was well received by children AND their parents.

I love to read this book to my students before we make our angels. It gives them a sense of pride to make their angels go look like them.
