We recently received three books for review, and we loved them all! I can only write honestly and my reviews are items I would actually recommend. The following books would be great gifts for children receiving sacraments: Baptism, Confession, First Communion and Confirmation. Or just to have around the house, see my note at the bottom.
How the Angels Got Their Wings by Anthony DeStefano is a GORGEOUS book, just like the rest of his collection. The illustrations are always above and beyond, and his story rhymes which is a crowd pleaser for Brendan, Declan and I. It's a quick read that is perfect for bedtime, and led to some great discussions about angels and our interactions with them. Everybody has a guardian angel, which is pretty mind-blowing and something I think about often as I tend to feel scared easily. I'm never alone with my buddy by my side, an angel created just for me, and neither are you! We also talked about how people who die are not angels, but they can become saints if they get to Heaven. Angels are completely different beings, created by God for other purposes than humans. This book is a keeper for sure and it's out for release today!
