God Gave Us Angels

Purchase God Gave Us Angels at AMAZON

“I’m going to pray that God sends his angels to watch over you, whether you can see them or not.”

God Gave Us Angels is filled with short phrasing and lovely pictures that tells a cute story about Papa Bear and his daughter, Little Cub.

The story begins with Little Cub, on a tree branch, looking for angels. She tells Papa Bear the bunnies told her angels are all around them. She asks Papa Bear a series of questions about angels, Have you seen one? What do they do all day? Do they have halos?  and more. Papa’s answers are honest, clear, and satisfy Little Cub’s curiosity.

There are many aspects of this book that make it extra-special. The story never contradicts Bible teachings, references to God are capitalized, Little Cub’s curiosity is realistic, and Papa Bear’s responses are loving, kind, and non-judgmental. There are no bratty outbursts, no outrageous, or weary parental replies—just a sweet, loving family relationship.

To put it simply, this book is adorable! I love the creative bear characters, the spirit of the story, the message, and the child-friendly illustrations. There’s not a single thing I don’t like about this story. The gentle pacing and loving message about God’s messengers and protectors makes it the perfect bedtime story.

This book is going on my keeper shelf. I’d like to collect the entire series of God Gave Us books.
