Children's Book Review - Gabby's Stick-To-It Day

I am pleased to be a part of the official Gabby's Stick-to-It Day blog tour. I got to review the first book in the series about Gabby last year, and I loved it. So I'm super excited that I got a chance to review the second book.

Gabby is one of God's guardian angels in training. In the first book, she learned about her first assignment, a little girl named Sophie. In the first book, she learned how to take care of Sophie. In this second book, Gabby has discovered a little problem. While Sophie is a good little girl, she has trouble sticking things out and finishing what she started. She starts to give her dog a bath, but then gets distracted when the dog jumps out of the water. Gabby reminds her of a bible verse that Sophie had learned earlier that week. It is Galatians 6:9 "We must not become tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time. We must not give up."

I love the Gabby books and I really hope that there are more. They get their message across in a simple way that children can understand without being preached to. I don't think any little kid reading this story would even know there was a lesson in it. It is just an adorable story about a little girl and her guardian angel. The illustrations are absolutely adorable, CJ loves them. He loves the pictures of the dog splashing and the pictures of Sophie with noodles on her head. You have to read the story to see how that happens. I recommend this for any children ages 7 and under. It is a quick easy book for a read-aloud. It would also be great for a Sunday School class. The author, Sheila Walsh, is actually a Bible teacher.

In honor of the release of this new Gabby book, Sheila and her publishing company are giving away tons of prizes. See below for more information. Thanks for stopping by!
