My Little Angel Coloring Book by Sherrill S. Cannon tells us that we all have a guardian angel looking out for us. The guardian angel is always there, even if we can’t see her or him. One little guardian angel named Angela sits on her girl’s shoulder all day, listening to her, helping her remember to do the right thing, making sure she’s safe and secure, and happy. Angela is a busy guardian angel as she helps her girl learn her lessons, remember her manners and always be polite, and take care when stranger danger is present. Life is not as easy as one would hope and it’s nice to know there’s a guardian angel on our shoulder to help us along our journey through life.
Sherrill S. Cannon’s coloring book story, My Little Angel Coloring Book, is a sweet story about a little girl and her guardian angel. Told in rhyming verse, the lyrical nature of the story will capture the attention of young readers as they learn, along with the little girl, some of the important things they must always do to stay safe and healthy at all times. The rhyming story appears on one page with a colorful background, while the facing page is a line drawing for young readers to color in themselves. Images of the author’s previous books are cleverly placed on some of the coloring pages. The plot is simple as it follows a little girl while she carries on with her daily journey through life with her special guardian angel perched on her shoulder. At the end of the book are some “Special Notes from Sherrill,” including questions about some of the important messages shared in the story. This is a clever, interactive book to teach young readers how to care for themselves and stay safe.
