My Review

There are stories that we want the children to know, but unless we make the stories interesting to them, they would rather go back to their cartoons, comics, games, and their favorite animation characters.

As a kid, whenever there was a family get together, an aunt of mine would get all the children together and tell us stories. She would weave interesting stories, teaching us many lessons through them.
These stories have stayed with us, even though the many lectures by the grown-ups have not.

The author starts the book with this dedication - "For my children, my nephews, and my niece, whom I wrote this story for one Christmas long ago."
Crystal The Christmas Angel, with a sweet protagonist, and cheerful narration of events leading to the big event - Christmas - make for a tale that kids would love reading.


The illustrations are bright and colorful.

Crystal The Christmas Angel is a lovely book to add warmth to the festive season.

About the Book




All of the angels in Heaven are preparing for a big event, and Crystal, a little angel, wants to be a part of it. But the more she tries, the more the angels tell her that she is just too little. That is, until God himself gives her the biggest, most important task of all ... going with the Archangel Gabriel to Mary, and bringing God’s greatest gift to the world. But can Crystal do what God asks? Journey with Crystal as she discovers that God sometimes chooses the most unlikely for the greatest tasks. Crystal also discovers that you are never too little to do great things. You just need to believe and never give up.
