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.
