Gabby God's Little Angel by Sheila Walsh

From the publisher: "What little girl wouldn't love her very own guardian angel? Parents and children alike will be won over by this humorous tale of Gabby, a guardian angel in training who has much to learn about taking care of God's little ones. Her new assignment is to protect a young girl named Sophie, but Gabby soon realizes that watching after Sophie is a bigger challenge than she had expected! After a close call while riding her pony, Sophie learns what the Bible says about guardian angels: "He will put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go" (Psalm 91:11 ICB)."

I thought it was a cute book and I appreciated that Sheila Walsh wanted kids to have a fun book about their guardian angels. However, I can only give it a few stars because it was unBiblical. Yes, it is Biblical about the guardian angels but the Bible says in Matthew 22:30, "At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven." So if angels don't marry then there aren't baby angels "in training".

While I enjoyed the cute-ness of the story if I gave this book to a child they aren't able to reason through things. Also, how safe would you really feel if you had a guardian angel who was just as clumsy as you? God does have angels to help us but they aren't like this book.

Once again, it was a cute book. But I can only give it a few stars.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
