Superb May 13, 2008
Simply superb. A simple book telling a beautiful tale. Wonderfully illustrated. My 3 year old and 19 month old love this book. There is not too many words that they get bored. It is large enough for children to hold and read.
Angels in the Waters May 4, 2008
This is a beautifully written book for children and adults. We totally love the story. It was given as a gift to our newest granddaughter by her godparents for her Baptism . the book was read by us and then we read it to her 3yr brother and 5 yr sister. It's a great book for the family to share. My daughter asked the 5 yr old who was that angel, she answered right away loud and clear. I'll let the readers read the book and answer that question for themself. I came home and ordered this copy and would love to see every family having a baby (1st or last) to read it together. It's a very special story. It's a gift that we will be giving to new parents as gifts as is our daughter planning to have copies on hand to give to parents of friends and Baptism gifts.
Beautiful Book Mar 28, 2008
I enjoyed "Angel in the Waters." It is a beautifully written book from the point of view of a baby in the womb. As an expecting mother, I loved to imagine it was my child. I bought one for me and my husband and a couple of our friends who are expecting, too.
The pictures are true without showing gender, so it could be any Caucasian baby. It would be nice to have the story remade for other ethnicities, too. (Just an idea!)
I am going to buy more for other pregnant friends!
amazing Jan 8, 2008
This book showed up on my reccomended list a couple of months ago. Hmmm, I thought--I'll chance it. Since then I've given copies to: --a 3 year old preparing for baptism --a friend in the middle of potentially bad news about her pregnancy --the teen mother of a child who died at 5 months gestation (I read it at the memorial service) --the mother of a 19 year old killed in a car crash Oh, and by the way, my son, who is adopted and who was abandoned at one week old, loves it, too. I think it's helping him form/reform hid connection to his birthmother in a really healthy way. In any event--I like it. A lot. It is very simple, but can be used in very profound situations where something less whimsical would not work. It's charming, with gentle humor, and full of love.
A must for an expecting mother Dec 11, 2007
I bought this for my older daughter when I was expecting no.2. It's about an unborn baby speaking to the angel inside the womb. It is so lovely, it actually brings tears to my eyes while carrying my baby and reading it to my older daughter on my lap. It also helps my older daughter to appreciate what is happening inside my tummy and appreciate her baby sister more!
