Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is meant to be used as an interactive book. The illustrations are child-like and parts are mirrored on the opposite page in black and white. It is written in a very sweet rhyming language that appeals to the very young and up until perhaps 8 years old. 
My main objective in producing this little gem is to encourage children both to 'read' (they may memorize very quickly) and also to envision an angel in their own heart. By envisioning this friendly and loving angel they can feel secure that 'someone' is always with them. they will soon learn that the someone is themselves. 
Self-esteem is important even from an early age. It makes for a perfect bed-time story.
For those who are comfortable being interactive via computer, I have set up a web-site to 'ask the Angel' a question. No personal information is asked for and no email address is captured. the address is:
 hey-angel.com
I welcome new friends of all ages. Kind Regards, Lesley Fletcher

Format: Paperback
A beautiful book for your children. Lesley writes in a rhyme style children love and her Angel topic is a good moral lesson for all children to learn. I am old and still believe in my guardian angel's help in getting me through tough times.

Format: Paperback
This is a sweet, yet truly impactful story you should read to or with your young children as you embark on imparting spirituality into their lives.

The author, Lesley Fletcher, weaves her special message through Johnny, a young child who already speaks to an angel on a daily basis. I especially liked this tact. It was as if nothing was new for a child to speak with an angel, so any child reading it will feel `okay' if he or she also does this, or is first being introduced to the subject of angels.

One way the story flows especially well is that, although Johnny speaks literally, Angel speaks in a rhyming, sing-song, easy-flowing way which lands easily on a child's ear.
The illustrations in "Hey Angel" are colorful and whimsical and mature a bit as the story progresses.

Spirituality and angels is a tough enough subject to grasp as adults; however, Ms. Fletcher shows acute adeptness in having Johnny's angel tell him that she's where he can `physically' place her first, i.e., she's on his knee, his thumb, his head and so on. In a child's mind's eye, if they can picture seeing an invisible entity first in `easy' places, then all the more easy it will be to make the transcendental jump and have a child internalize the idea in his/her heart.

What I love most about this book is that Ms. Fletcher answers specific questions at the end of the story that a child might have about Angel; furthermore, she invites her readers to contact her via email with any specific questions they may have. I have not seen this before and think it a perfect, personal feature to offer young readers.

What a comforting feeling it is to know early on that one is never alone, and this is why I would highly recommend "Hey Angel" to families everywhere.
