    A good read.

    When this book arrived my daughter and I immediately read it. She is 9 and she read it out loud to me and her older brother. It is a wonderful little book. The story is written by Elizabeth ‘Lis’ Luwia and illustrated by Theresa Hossenlopp. It is an excellent volume for the young readers in your life. This is the story of Angie and Sam. Angie is a young girl and Sam is her guardian angel. Each page has text from both Sam and Angie and also a “Did You Know” section with information or teaching from the church. Sam helps Angie understand the mass better. The illustrations are wonderful. They are photos of clay plate pictures. The style works wonderfully for this story. My daughter loved the illustrations. My so thought they were fu. I would have preferred a more warrior angel, but the book if for young children. All three of us gave the book 5/5 stars. My daughter has already read it twice more. She struggled with the ‘Did you know’ sections. But absolutely loved the two prayers in the book. Both the spiritual communion and the Angel of God prayer. My son loved the ‘did you know’ sections. And he also really liked the two prayers. This is a wonderful book for the home, church or school library. It was an instant favorite in our house. And I am certain it will be loved in your house as well.
