I’ll often tell my children that they have a Guardian Angel watching out for them, especially when they’ve done something that should have rendered them injured. This has made them curious to know more about Angels. “Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” is a great introduction for little ones who are just beginning to explore their faith and want to know more about Angels and what they do.
“Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” by Allia Zobel Nolan is a board book for children that introduces them to the Angels we read about in the Bible. The book covers both the Old and New Testaments, retelling stories of how Angels interacted with Elijah, Daniel, Mary and many others.
The illustrations are beautiful created by Alisa Massari. The colours are rich and each image has a comforting feeling. I love how the author shows the emotion in the faces of each being illustrated. While we don’t know exactly what an angel looks like, I like how the author depicts them in a way that is familiar to what my children are accustomed to seeing. The pages are sturdy cardboard, perfect for little hands to hold.
Each story is short, covering about 4 pages. Read one story at a time or the whole book. Each story shares a scripture reference so that you explore each story in more depth. The stories in “Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” are told so that even the littlest child can understand. They read wonderfully out loud making them perfect for sharing at bedtime or Sunday School.
“Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” shares the stories of the Angels in the Bible, sharing their messages of love from God. I love how the first story of “Abraham and the Three Visitors” tells us that while the three visitors looked like men, they were really Angels. This story is a great time to talk to your children about the Angels we may encounter in our own lives.
“Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” is a wonderful introduction to the Angels that we read about in the Bible. The book is available at most major retailers including Zondervan Publishing.
