About the Author

As an avid genealogist, the author knows the value and reward of learning about past generations. She prepared many family history documents for the adults in her family and thought it would be fun to do something that would allow children to benefit from this kind of knowledge. She wanted them to develop an interest in their own roots, to learn about family trees and discover that cemeteries are places that can make history come alive. One day, she took three of her young grandchildren to the cemetery for an outing. They spread a blanket on the ground near the family plot and began putting together bouquets of flowers. As the children placed flowers at each headstone, she shared stories about that person's life. It was the first time the children had been in a cemetery and they left with fond memories of a fun day with their grandmother and with a little knowledge about ancestors they never knew. It was after that outing the author began to think of a way to share this family history adventure with other children so they too can learn about their relatives of long ago. "Family Angels" grew out of those thoughts. The author lives with her husband in Northern California and "Family Angels" is the first children's book she has written. She continues researching family history and assists friends and family when they need help with their genealogy projects.

Format: Paperback
This is a great idea for a children's book and the author carries it off beautifully. The book turns a young girl's potentially scary and mysterious trip to the cemetary into a fun adventure, where she learns about the lives of her relatives who have passed away, giving her a better sense of who she is and where she came from. Kudos for a great idea, excellently crafted by Karen Boyden Crum, with outstanding illustrations by Stephen Adams. Highly recommended!

This is a wonderful book for children, dealing with an important fact of life. I bought it for my grandchildren for Christmas. Like Sarah, my grandchildren thought cemetaries were scary. Their great grandmother died a month after Christmas. It was their first funeral and trip to a cemetary. They remembered the book and enjoyed touring the cemetary and learning about the family members that were buried there. Also like Sarah, they realized cemetaries weren't that scary.

I purchased this book and am very pleased with it. The illustrations are great and the story line is easy to follow. It is a great tool for teaching children about relatives and the family tree.
