“Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” by Allia Zobel Nolan is a board book for children that introduces them to the Angels we read about in the Bible. The book covers both the Old and New Testaments, retelling stories of how Angels interacted with Elijah, Daniel, Mary and many others.
The illustrations are beautiful created by Alisa Massari. The colours are rich and each image has a comforting feeling. I love how the author shows the emotion in the faces of each being illustrated. While we don’t know exactly what an angel looks like, I like how the author depicts them in a way that is familiar to what my children are accustomed to seeing. The pages are sturdy cardboard, perfect for little hands to hold.
Each story is short, covering about 4 pages. Read one story at a time or the whole book. Each story shares a scripture reference so that you explore each story in more depth. The stories in “Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” are told so that even the littlest child can understand. They read wonderfully out loud making them perfect for sharing at bedtime or Sunday School.
“Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” shares the stories of the Angels in the Bible, sharing their messages of love from God. I love how the first story of “Abraham and the Three Visitors” tells us that while the three visitors looked like men, they were really Angels. This story is a great time to talk to your children about the Angels we may encounter in our own lives.
“Angels in the Bible for Little Ones” is a wonderful introduction to the Angels that we read about in the Bible.

Now little ones can learn a little more about these fascinating creatures in Allia Zobel Nolan's book entitled, Angels In the Bible for Little Ones. In this padded board book each of the parts of the Bible that features angels is detailed and it is written in simple words for them to understand. A sweet little book for a young child just being born or a preschooler thats curious.
My favorite part of the book was the angel that told the Mary's that Jesus was no longer in the tomb. This is the perfect story for this time of year because we are about to celebrate the resurrection.
Perfect for ages 4-8.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own. (Posted on 2/27/2017)
