Angels for Kids by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle
The invisible world of angels is so often overlooked, though it has been present since before the dawn of Creation, offering attentive service and protection to humankind. Based on Catholic teaching, Angels for Kids offers proof of the true existence of angels while dispelling prevalent contemporary myths.
This inspiring book will open the eyes and hearts of youth and their families to a greater awareness of the unseen world, as well as provide warm encouragement to keep company with the incredible angelic friends who unceasingly glorify God and who have been a significant part of salvation history; protecting Jesus throughout His life, announcing heaven’s plans, and guiding and protecting the faithful. A chapter of special prayers to the angels completes the book.

“ Science calls us to believe in the unseeable – black holes in space, which cannot ever be seen because they absorb all light before it can reflect back to an observer. They believe in black holes because of anomalous behavior in space. So also, Christians, like Jews, Muslims, and many other religious people around the world and throughout history believe in angels, not only because of anomalous behaviors we experience in life's events but also because of God's Revelation in Scripture. We do well to introduce children to these facts, along with astronomical facts, to prepare them for mature spiritual life. This book is such an introduction, and parents might be reminded of their own angels as they read with their children.”
-Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.
“Angels for Kids by Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle surveys the whole Bible in a touching way. The book reminds its young readers that they are always lovingly cared for by God and protected from every kind of harm.”
