Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you have children at home, these stories will be a wondrous way to teach them about the providence of God."
--The Good News, Diocese of Kalamazoo


 "Adults will easily get in touch with their 'child within' as they read through the stories of love and protections."
-- Shellie Braeuner, New Catholic Books & Media

Book Description

Children are known to have wild imaginzations, which explains why their stuffed animals talk and invisible friends get invited to tea parties. So it's no wonder than when a child reports a personal encounter with an angel, adults tend to dismiss it with a wry smile and say, "That's nice, sweetie. Why don't you go outside and play?"

But Joan Wester Anderson says "not so fast." If Jesus himself taught that the kingdom of heaven belongs to children, there's no reason in the world not to believe that God can reveal his love to little ones through angels. In An Angel to Watch Over Me (originally published by Random House in 1994, with sales of 150,000 copies), Anderson shares more than 30 stories of children's experiences with celestial beings--from a boy whose angels helps him conquer his fear of thunderstorms to a girl who is miraculously rescued from her burning home.

From angels who combat evil and darkness to angels who bring news of comfort and joy, each of these accounts is grounded in traditional Christian belief, eschewing any New Age interpretation of the events. For all who are open to the possibility that even children can have authentic spiritual lives--and that attaining a certain age is not a prerequisite for God to touch our lives in the form of heavenly helpers--this book is sure to stir the soul and fan the faith.

Ms Anderson, has written many books in this area and they are written to read with ease and for Children as well as adults to read. When you read the short stories, you can usually relate to what you are reading, and maybe even remember an event in your past you could not explain. She has great insight and belief. Great book to read and relax.. Pat Hodge

I loved this book. In fact, I couldn't put it down. This book is a really good one to read if you're looking for a miracle..if you're looking for hope, because out of the mouths of these children come things that they couldn't possibly make up..and also out of the mouths of their families...Miracles do happen...and there are thousands and thousands of angels in our world...happenings that surpasses all human understanding. This book is really a well-written account of some of them. Very good read..I would recommend it to anyone...

Beautiful, moving, and inspiring stories! This was a gift for our ten year old son; he sped through it and told his brothers all about it. It's made the presence and love of their guardian angels much more vivid to them. Looking forward to buying more titles in the series!

My boys who are 8 and 10 love the way the book shares stories of angels in everyday life. It helps to keep their awareness of angels in the ordinary activities in life, instead of thinking of angels as doing the miraculous. It lets them know they can always pray for guidance or help or comfort.

My kids and I all read this book together. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. All the stories involve angels and children, so my kids could relate to all of them.

Reading this book was like getting a good booster shot for our faith. We all highly recommend it.
