J has taken to doing nighttime prayers with me and loves to end with mention of his guardian angel to keep him safe.
He’s also enjoying this new title in our house which shows a guardian angel ‘in action.’ Only, instead of the focus being on keeping a child safe, the book shows how the guardian angel can help guide a child in better ways to approach life.
I am all for creative ways to get kids thinking about different traits we want to encourage, such as perseverance. This story fits the bill for the younger crowd. What amazed me is how D started hanging close by to listen as I read to J. I suppose he felt drawn to the story and just had to check it out.
About the book: Gabby’s Stick-to-It-Day
Gabby, God’s Little Angel, flies to the rescue as Sophie attempts to help others but has a little trouble sticking with things. Sophie tries to be helpful by washing the family dog for her mom, but she gives up when she’s the one who ends up all wet. She then tries to be kind by reading to her little brother, but he has plans of his own, which include a splash of cereal right in Sophie’s face! When Sophie is ready to quit once again, it’s up to Gabby to encourage her to keep trying and to teach her what the Bible says about perseverance: “We must not become tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NCV)
