My Thoughts

I have really enjoyed the storybooks by Donna Wyland and so have my children, especially my younger ones. The books are always so beautifully illustrated and really have questions that children ask themselves. This one is no exception. I think this one is perfect for children that may just experienced loss as it answers questions about God and angels. Although in our household we don't focus solely on angels but rather on God I know children always have questions about them and this book definitely gives them the answers that they may be seeking. 

Donna Wyland writing for children is very friendly and understandable. Children that are under the age of 6 will definitely enjoy this book.

More from Donna

Having experienced much loss early in life, God gave me a heart and a longing to know all I can about living forever with Him in heaven. I did not set out to write If I Could Ask Jesus, but God through the Holy Spirit chose to create it through me. Whether writing for children or adults, I feel that my purpose is to bring the hope of heaven and the joy of the Lord to people wherever they are.
