Fun to find this from All-Author:
This is Emma, who has had to fight not only Juvenile Myositis, but Leukemia!
Emma has an indomitable spirit and a contagious smile, although spending much of her young life at Duke Hospital and Ronald McDonald House! This is her comment about My Little Angel from her mother:
“She loved it. She has read it so much that she knows it by heart 🙂 she shows it off to everyone?!”
“Emma is the 9 year old daughter of Anthony and Ida Conley of Wise County, VA. Emma was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis at the age of 5 which is a rare autoimmune disease…18 months into treatment she was diagnosed with APML, a rare form of leukemia. She has undergone many chemotherapy treatments and lumbar punctures but has kept her faith and her smiles. She is a girly girl with high hopes and a bright spirit. She has a big heart and touches the lives of everyone she meets in some way.”

I love it when I receive email reviews, and am happy to share a couple of nice ones I have just been sent! I especially love it when they are written by young people!!
Addie has written a lovely review for My Little Angel…
“Dear Sherrill, Thank you so much for showing me another one of your amazing children’ s books. I have always loved how your books rhyme! It makes the book really interesting and easier to understand. The little girl is very lucky to have a guardian angel to show her right from wrong and to show her how to be kind to others. “My Little Angel” helped me realize that I have a guardian angel sitting on my shoulder watching over me also. My favorite two lines of the book are “She’s my little angel, sent from above. To tell me God cares for me, shows me His love-” This is my favorite line because God loves us all and he wants to help us be the best person we can be. I really like how her little angel Angela wipes up her tears when she is sad and how when they are in the car together her angel sings songs to her “mile after mile”. This book is very touching to me because we all need a little help sometimes and this book shows us that there is always someone there to help you if you are feeling sad, or if you feel like you have done wrong, or even if we need to know how to behave and treat others. Thank you again for sharing your talent of writing amazing children’ s books with me and the rest of the world!”
Zayden is one of my Kid Reviewers – and the rest of the family: Lily, Anthony and Samiya are too! They write
“My Little Angel is an awesome book. It showed me that someone’s always watching over me and protecting me. Gimme-Jimmy, The Golden Rule, Manner-man & The Magic Word are all in our library at home. We love all your books and will be purchasing the other 4 soon. Thank you! Love always, Zayden, Lily, Anthony & Samiya!”
I loved hearing from Abigail…
Her mother writes:
Here is my little angel, Abigail, checking out My Little Angel.
Here is her review:
“I loved it and I am bringing it to school today so I can show my class. I liked that it rhymed and that the angel made the girl sneeze and that an angel could be funny. I found all of the pictures and this is my favorite book by her.”
Thanks so much, Abigail! (and Mom)
