"INSPIRATIONAL AND HEARTWARMING...Anyone who was ever once a child will enjoy it--and so will those who are still children, or children at heart."
Perhaps because children have not yet learned to disbelieve what their eyes, ears, and hearts tell them, they have a special closeness with angels. After the publication of Joan Wester Anderson's New York Times bestseller Where Angels Walk, people urged her to write a book entirely about children's experiences with angels--and sent along their own personal narratives as witness to these miraculous visitations.
An Angel to Watch Over Me is the result: a wonderful collection of stories that documents and describes extraordinary encounters between children and celestial visions. There's the grandmotherly angel who consoles an ailing girl in a hospital emergency room, and the angel who helps a Texas boy lose his fear of thunderstorms. There are angels who combat darkness, bring glad tidings, and offer comfort. Angel prayers, mothers' memories, beautiful illustrations, and some heavenly hugs also grace these pages. For those who read this wondrous book, angels become a warm and loving presence in everyday life, a blessed part of being.
"A GEM FOR BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN...I love this book."
"MIRACULOUS...Poems, songs, and other angelic messages dot the text along with sweet drawings."

This is a wonderful and inspiring book to share with your child. How many of us believe in angels, and realize they are our divine protectors? This book is a perfect way of reminding your little one--who can often be scared by 'monsters' under the bed, or other such things--that God, and His angels, are watching over every one of us each and every day. The author, Joan Wester Anderson, wrote this book because after the publication of her title WHERE ANGELS WALK, lots of people asked her to do a book that was devoted entirely to children's encounters with celestial visitors. To further remind your little one of the presence of angels in everyday life, Joan and I included a section at the back that offers angel prayers, angel poems, angel songs, and angel stories and legends from around the world. We hope you and your child find reassurance and inspiration from this title, for that was its intent. --E. Zack, Sr. EditorFrom the Author:
This was the only one of the series written for children. The hardcover is long since out of print, as is the Spanish language version of it. However, the paperback is still out there. --author
