In his 2014 homily for the Feast of Holy Guardian Angels, October 2, Pope Francis told those gathered for daily mass to be like children who pay attention to their "traveling companion. No one journeys alone, and no one should think that they are alone.
"According to Church tradition," the pope said, "we all have an angel with us, who guards us . . . It is what God said: 'I send an angel before you, to guard you, to accompany you on the way, so you will not be alone.'"
In this children's book, angels wait anxiously and with great excitement to see which one of them will be chosen to be the guardian angel of a child that is to be born. This delightful book depicts the joy of all God's creations anticipating the birth of another precious child. The sun shines brighter, the moon has a shinier glow, flowers grow taller, birds tweet more sweetly, and angels dance and sing with bliss, as all creation awaits another baby girl or boy.
Whenever a Child Is Born offers the perfect message for parents as it charmingly tells the story of how all of heaven and earth react to the news that a child is about to be born. The story comforts parents with the knowledge that their baby is a special gift from heaven to them, and that they will never be alone raising their child, and that their child will never ever be alone in life.
Parents never worry. No one journeys alone through life because whenever a child is born, he is given a guardian angel.
And I thought...
A charming and sweet picture book and story.
The illustrations are sweet and whimsical.
The lyric is charming and reminds parents that babies are a gift. The story is told so that children can understand. And is written simply so that older children can read to younger siblings.
I liked the story tells that the sun shines bright. The stars twinkle and even the animals are happy for new babies.
This was my favorite page...
The story tells how babies have guardian Angels.
The copy I received was a paperback. It is large but small with only 30 pages making me wonder about the value. I think I would like the hardcover copy better.
I enjoyed reading this sweet book.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will be posted on retail sites and Good Reads.
