5 Little Angels Review with Craft Round-Up


Disclosure: I am working with The Children's Book Review and Kathleen T. Pelley to participate in this Virtual Book Tour. I was sent a digital copy of the book for the review and will receive a small stipend. All opinions are my own. 

Today I am sharing a new picture book with you from Kathleen T. Pelley. It is a sweet, religious picture book. It is Five Little Angels. After my review I will share some angel crafts to go with this book and there is a giveaway as part of the blog tour!

From the Publisher:

Five Little Angels

Written by Kathleen T. Pelley

Illustrated by Dubravka Kolanovic

Ages 3-7 | Pages 54

Publisher: Elk Lake Publishing, Inc. | ISBN-13: 978-1649491794

Publisher’s Synopsis: Join this celestial romp with five little angels, who hop on a cloud to take a peek at the world below, and see all sorts of loving acts of kindness, which sends them into a frenzy of delight. A lyrical read aloud to teach your little angel how kindness can build heaven on earth.

From Me:

This book is sweet. It is set up like "10 Little Monkeys Jumping on a Bed." However the angels are on a cloud and are seeing acts of kindness on Earth. It is meant to show kids about being kind as well as knowing they are loved. The illustrations are cute and sweet as well. Kids will love the pictures and probably try to draw some themselves. I love the idea the of the story and love the message of kindness for young kids. I also love the religious aspects. I could see this book being read to preschool and kindergarten Sunday School classes or before bed to that age group. I also could see it becoming a favorite of the younger kids and them wanting it read each night and probably even learning the words to it!

Angels I received in an angel swap

Of course to go with this book I would make some angel crafts. I asked some fellow bloggers for their favorite angel crafts and have some to share with you! Apparently I love angels because I have made quite a few angels with Hazel over the years.
