God Gave Us Angels Book Review

 About the Book

“What do angels do all day, Papa?”

When Papa finds Little Cub looking for angels, it gives him a chance to tell his beloved child about those that may be in their midst, even when they can’t be seen.  Exploring their exhilarating Arctic world as they talk, Papa lovingly answers all of Little Cub’s questions about angels—and as usual, she has a lot. She wants to know what they do, how they look, how they guard God’s loved ones, and best of all, how they serve the Creator of the world. 

“God really created angels to serve him more than us, Little Cub.
They love him and would do anything for him.”

This uplifting tale will encourage young hearts by exploring the glory and design of God’s messengers, while turning toward him with praise.  (Goodreads)

 My Review

 This is the second book I have read in this "God Gave Us" series. I really like the books because they are simple, to the point, colorful, and easy for little ones to understand. They are also board books which is also a huge plus. I feel like angels can be difficult to explain and this book does a pretty nice job. I think the main thing is separating what the Bible says and what is portrayed in movies and such. Little Cub is looking for angels after being told they are all around us. Papa Bear proceeds to explain. Yes, there are angels, usually we can't see them, and they serve God. 
The key point that I really liked is when Little Cub asks, "Should we pray to the angels?". Papa Bear answers saying, "We should pray only to God." (page 8)

Needless to say I was impressed with this book and I can't wait to share it with the little ones in my life!
