Angels are everywhere. They are special messengers from God, sharing His love for us. Angels are there when we need them, even if we can’t see them. Angels have been around since the beginning of time. In fact, it was angels who spread the important message to Mary that she would carry “a sweet baby boy.” They talked to Joseph in a dream and told him that the boy would be called Jesus and that “One day, He would set people free.”
Children need to hear the amazing story of the first Christmas. They need to hear the story of the angels and how important angels are in helping spread God’s love for all of us. Wanda Carter Roush’s picture book story, Angel on Assignment, is a beautiful story about angels, past and present. Using colorful illustrations and telling the story in rhyming verse, this book will be a treasure for young children, a treasure to be shared with their parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles. The message is very clear: “When angels come from Heaven above,/ Their assignment is wrapped in God’s love.”
The author leads the young reader through the story of the first Christmas: Mary’s visit from an angel, Joseph’s visit from an angel, the shepherds learning of the birth of Jesus from angels. These are important stories for young children to learn. But they also need to understand that angels are around them all the time, even if they can’t see them. Children need to understand and appreciate the depth of God’s love. This is an excellent addition to any young child’s library. Beautifully told.
