My children grew up with me reading books to them on a daily basis. Now that I am a Memaw to four lovely little ones I love to read to them just as much as I did to my children. I try to read with them as much as possible. I hope to impart to them how important reading is not only for enjoyment and knowledge but just for the love of reading! So when I saw this children's book I thought it would be a great book to review.
I had not heard of the book, God Gave Us Angels by Lisa Tawn Bergen, but when I saw the cover I immediately wanted to pick this book. I loved the adorable artwork on the cover of the big polar bear and the little polar bear with the polar bear angel in the background. The very touching message in the book- God Gave Us Angels is only made better by the lovely illustrations!
I had the pleasure of reading the book to my 23 month old grand-daugher and my 6 year old grandson this afternoon. The little one sat on my lap and the other right by my side and were very still for the entire story. They looked at the pictures and were eager for me to read the next page.
The loving message about angels always being with us was very nice to share with my little grand children. I loved that the book gave many reminders about what angels are and are not. Both of the children loved the book and I plan on keeping it in my "Memaw Library" for many years. I am sure that I will read this book to them many more times.
I received this book for free from Blogging For Books for this review.
