Earth Soul, Madrid

Small children will love the row of cutout angel heads that reveal the features of each little angel. This is a beautiful and inspiring picture book that heralds the Christmas message of loving kindness with every page.

(Ages 3–6)

  • “An old-fashioned aura seeps from the gently colored illustrations of this inspiring tale. It is about angels who are ready to fly down to earth to help the lost, the lonely, and the weary. Children love the cut-out angels' heads which reveal the features of each one in turn—and the paper is sufficiently strong to withstand a great deal of handling.” —Carousel Christmas Guide to Children's Books

    “This book is delightfully illustrated with a cut-out of each angel's head on every page ... Children will learn an important lesson from this book and understand that the overriding message of Christmas is to be good to others.... The rhyming sentences are lovely to read.” —Creative Steps magazine
