Angels in the Bible Storybook By Allia Zobel Nolan
illustrated by Alida Massari is a beautiful book. This children's bible storybook is adorned with beautiful illustrations. The artwork by Massari alone make the book worthwhile to purchase. The art and especially the angels are vibrant and beautiful- adored with beautifully adorned wings and gowns. The textured artwork jumps out at the reader The storytelling is unique in that the focus of the bible stories place emphasis on the angels without detracting from the message of the bible story. This bible story book tells the well known stories of the bible from a new and unique perspective. I believe this is a well worthwhile addition to your library even if you already own other childrens' bible storybooks. This book is a work of art, and the stories as retold by Nolan are true to the bible's message. Inserted are simple selected bible verses- perfect for young children and even their parents. I can see another use for this book as well- I feel this volume would brighten the day for any adult who needs some cheer for their spirits. I can imagine this would also make a wonderful gift for anyone who is sick or in need of a reminder of what heaven has in store. I can not say enough of this beautiful book- I believe every parent should buy a copy. I think the parents will secretly enjoy it for themselves too. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this book published by Zonderkidz for the purpose of writing this review.
