“My Little Angel” is a lovely narrative verse story about a little girl’s miniature guardian angel, named Angela, who guides her safely through all the activities of her day. Angela reminds the girl to buckle her seat belt, to be courteous and kind to others, and to do good deeds that help strengthen the spirit as well as the mind. Angela helps keep the girl safe and sound all day and all night too. She helps her to be careful and follow rules when crossing the street, and to remember to share when she plays with others. Angela lets the child know that she is always loved, and although she may feel lonely sometimes, she is never alone. After a day of pleasant activities with Angela’s guidance and continued presence, the girl goes to bed feeling safe and loved, whispering prayers for loved pets and family: “She’s my little angel, sent from above /To tell me God cares for me, shows me His love. / When I close my eyes after prayers have been said/ Angela sleeps on the top of my head.” Cheery colored illustrations and special notes from Sherrill help young readers connect to the story’s message. A beautiful successor to the eight previous children’s books in this series, “My Little Angel” is a treasure for young readers age 5 and up.” ..Lorraine – Midwest Book Review – 2017

5 Star review for “My Little Angel”, by Sherrill S. Cannon
Charming and Wise
By Ann (Ana) Morris on February 6, 2018
This is a charming story about a young girl with her own angel who stays with her through the day and night. Angela (the angel’s name) provides entertainment, guidance, safety reminders, and confidence to follow the guidelines her loving parents have taught her. It is a charming story with colorful and expressive illustrations.
An additional touch that provoked my curiosity was seeking out the book covers of Sherrill’s other books in the story. Very clever! I enjoy Sherrill’s wholesome and guiding stories.

“My Little Angel” is a very cool children’s book, and because it is not religious has a much broader appeal: the Little Angel is a kind of a “mini advisor” who encourages children to do the right thing, and praises them in an affirming way. Children can learn that they don’t have to rely on mom’s or dad’s praise but that their “imaginary advisor” supports them.
I like that, a lot. Let’s face it, these days moms and dads are busy hence it can only help to have an imaginary supporter.
Author Sherrill Cannon mentions all the do’s and don’ts, including my favorite:
“…When I ride in cars, I sit in the back, And Angela fastens my belt with a clack…”
That’s just a perfect way to put it because the wording encourages children to “be grown-ups” and do what angels do.
Does your child have a Guardian Angel? Please share a day in the life of this little girl, while her little guardian angel Angela sits on her shoulder and keeps her safe and guides her throughout her various activities throughout her day. This includes getting ready for school, crossing the street, being polite and kind to her friends, (and even sneezing into her elbow!), learning her lessons, fastening seatbelts while traveling, being aware of stranger-danger, praying for her pets, and reminding her constantly that she is loved.
Once again social values are emphasized in this latest illustrated children’s story by award-winning author Sherrill S. Cannon. Meet many of the classroom friends from her previous books, as little angel Angela guides this child throughout her day…

Sherrill s. Cannon is one of my children’s most favourite authors, and mine as well because each of her books has a moral in it. Here are three that pertain to manners:
Manner-Man, turn those bad manners around and become a superhero for those in need! This book even comes with a cut-out badge! Read our full review of this book here.
