We were recently given opportunity to review a children's book from Wisdom Tales. The poetic book Angels was written by Alexis York Lumbard and illustrated by Flavia Weedn.
Wisdom Tales author, Alexis
Lumbard lives with her husband and three daughters
in Massachusetts. Alexis's first published children's
book was "The conference of The Birds" illustrated
by well known author and illustrator Demi. Angels
is her newest publication for Wisdom Tales, which
well known artist Flavia Weedn illustrated.
Alexis noticed a lack of high
quality books for the very youngest of readers. In
2005, after she first became a mother she began
writing her own stories. She has a B.A. in Religious
Studies from George Washington University, therefore
it is her sincere hope to bring the wisdom and beauty
of the world's religions to the eager and gifted minds
of young children.
When we received this beautifully done
little book, the pictures and the story was sentimental to all
of us. Alexis very gently has angels every where. Not too long ago..
A very special grandmother went to heaven. During
times of grief, its the children who are filled with
confusion at every turn. We get left wondering how
we are going to help them understand a good bye
that has to be forever. We almost always have that
apprehension, wanting to explain in ways so we don't
traumatize the innocence of their young minds. While the book is non denominational,
for our children, they are just beginning to understand Jesus
is good, and Jesus is loving. Now we were faced with
having to explain Jesus says its time for grandma to
go home to heaven.
We explain to our very little ones
that Jesus has sent angels to take very special care of
grandma, angels who are going to take her to her new
beautiful home in heaven, and that from now on
she would be like our angel watching over us all the time.
The book with its beautiful pictures
helped to further comfort their young minds, that angels
are among us and they are making sure that grandma
is okay. They love the bright pictures, and for them there
is more than one special story inside.
