Gabby God’s Little Angel by Sheila Walsh

This is a great children’s book! Gabby the angel is in “guardian angel training” and she is placed with a little girl named Sophie. She needs lots of protection, but is Gabby up for the job? Can Gabby show Sophie God’s love for her?

The Lord is your protection…He has put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go. Psalm 91:9, 11.

The illustrations are so adorable every little girl will love having this story. You will find sentences in pink and blue. It is possible to just read those words if you’re short on time but have already promised a story to your child. I am giving this book to my niece for her second birthday.

I am pleased to give this book a five star rating.
