If your family loves the Elf on the Shelf and you want to keep the fun going, check out Angel on Assignment. It’s a children’s activity book that offers a Christian alternative to the elf, teaching children about the angels who watch over them, not just at Christmas but all year long. With beautiful illustrations and rhyming verse, Angel on Assignment takes readers through the angels’ roles in the Christmas story and presents the ways guardian angels look out for boys and girls today—and how children can act as angels in disguise for friends who need help. See how many angels your child can find—some are hiding! At the end of the book, you’ll find detailed instructions for making your own angel. When you’re finished, you can introduce your angel to your elf and let them keep an eye on things. Then post a photo of your creation to the book’s Facebook page, and check out the angels that other families have made!
Wanda Carter Roush’s picture book story, Angel on Assignment, is a beautiful story about angels, past and present. Using colorful illustrations and telling the story in rhyming verse, this book will be a treasure for young children, a treasure to be shared with their parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles. The message is very clear: “When angels come from Heaven above,/ Their assignment is wrapped in God’s love.”Children need to understand and appreciate the depth of God’s love. This is an excellent addition to any young child’s library. Beautifully told.
Angel on Assignment: Move Over Elf. It's Time To Share The Shelf, introduces angels to young children in terms that will allow them not only to understand what angels are, but to feel protected and loved by angels. Mike Motz's illustrations work quite well with the text, providing a wide variety of different angels for the reader. This is a comforting story for a young child, and would be an excellent bedtime story for those who still see bedtime as just a little bit scary. Angel on Assignment: Move Over Elf. It's Time To Share The Shelf is highly recommended.
Angel On Assignment by Wanda Carter Roush is a wonderful Christian alternative for Elf on A Shelf. The illustrations are beautiful and engaging. The story is fun and has an endearing message for the Christian child. It touches on the birth and the death of Jesus, and shows how the angels rejoice when someone invites Jesus into their hearts. With a fun activity at the end of the book, children can feel closer to their angels as they create their angel assignment. Start a new family tradition and welcome angels into your home for the holidays! I recommend this book for the whole family as it is a fun, interactive angelic adventure, perfect for children and adults to read together.
