Date Published: September 20th 2011
Publisher: Tommy Nelson, a division of Thomas Nelson
This first book in a delightful new series offers a comforting message for young readers – God loves you very much and is always watching out for you!
What little girl wouldn’t love her very own guardian angel? Parents and children alike will be won over by this humorous tale of Gabby, a guardian angel in training who has much to learn about taking care of God’s little ones. Her new assignment is to protect a young girl named Sophie, but Gabby soon realizes that watching after Sophie is a bigger challenge than she had expected! After a close call while riding her pony, Sophie learns what the Bible says about guardian angels: “He will put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go” (Psalm 91:11 ICB).
You may remember last year when I shared our thoughts on a great little girl’s Princess Devotional Bible from Sheila Walsh. I love sparkily covers! Now, I am delighted to share with you a brand new series starting with a first book on a darling little girl named Gabby.
Gabby is the cutest artist little angel I have ever seen! I’m very much in love with this series and I am delighted to have it for my daughters. Such little spunk and personality just flows from Gabby as much as her music from her harp strings. Sophie is a dear little girl and Gabby is just the angel for her. Reading and watching as these two kindred hearts find serenity in the presence of each other is great. I cannot wait to see what comes next in Gabby’s Stick-to-it Day!

Written as a story to be read aloud, Gabby, God’s Little Angel provides lessons about God’s ever-presence and love. The first in this new Gabby series engages little girls with stories of Sophie’s antics and the lengths to which Gabby goes to keep her safe, demonstrating Psalm 91:11: “He will put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go.”
There is a lot of interest in angels in our culture, but so much of it is based on fairy tales and not the truth of God’s Word. In Matthew, Jesus draws a child to his side and says, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.” (18:10)
Walsh is moved by God’s passion for children and wanted to show how angels can affect their lives every day. Walsh says, “We live in a crazy world, but we serve a God who loves us and our children with a relentless passion. What a gift to let our children know that they are never alone, that they are always loved. That is a story worth telling!”
Gigi fans will fall in love with Gabby and learn about God’s love and provision and a little about His invisible creation, the angels.

A Letter From Sheila Walsh…
Angels have always fascinated me. As a young girl, I would gaze in wonder at illustrations of their airy magnificence, soak up each and every story from the Bible about these specifically created beings and would imagine that my very own guardian angel was behind me each step of the way.
Fast forward to 2011 and I am still fascinated by these heavenly creatures. Yet now as a grown woman and mother, I find myself amazed and a little perplexed by what fascinates today’s modern little girl. Monsters, vampires and wizards, oh my! It seems these fictitious other worldly beings are now captivating their young minds and enveloping their young worlds. As a parent, I wanted to create a new children’s book series that would put the spotlight on a subject truly worthy of fascination….angels.
So I set out to develop a new character that young readers would embrace and delight in, and out from my pen and from my heart poured a new series, Gabby, God’s Little Angel. Gabby is an adorable guardian angel in training who finds that she has so much to learn about taking care of God’s children. Introducing your little ones to the very real truth that, “He will put his angels in charge of you…they will watch over you wherever you go.” (Psalm 91:11 ICB); this delightful new series was written to teach this comforting message in a way easy for them to understand.
I am so passionate about teaching the little angels in your own lives just how much God loves them. I pray that through my new little friend, Gabby, they will discover
this truth and rest assured that He is always watching over them!
