KIDS' BOOK REVIEW

TO SLEEP WITH THE ANGELS
H. Elizabeth Collins Illustrations by Judy Kuusisto

Some of the most fabulous art I have ever seen in a children’s book; this will help children realize there really are angels and that we all are looked after and safe in this world, which can be sometimes frightening. Very comforting, it is a good book to calm a crying child, or lift the spirits of a kid who is sick. It is a great bedtime book, as it brings the mind to never never land on the wings of angels!

Recommended for kids age 3-8, I think even adult kids like my mother will like this great gift item, as I caught her reading before her afternoon nap. I bet she dreamed of angels!

My favorite part of the book is the following magical excerpt: “Time to fly with your angel”. When I hear these words, I know it’s time to go to sleep. Snuggling deep beneath my covers, I pull the blankets up to my chin until only my hand is peeking out. Then I close my eyes and whisper in the darkness. “Angels, angels, all around. Angels, angels, come surround. Hold my hand throughout the night. Guide me from the dark to light”.

Since I’ve found my angel, my dreams are filled with magical adventures. I know that in the darkness there is light. All I need to do is close my eyes and fly.
