Where Do Angels Sleep?
ISBN: 0758612982

Concordia Publishing House. 2007

The more children learn about God and His creation, the more questions they have. They are particularly curious about things they cant see-such as angels. This book tells about Gods holy angels and their presence in our lives. Told in a simple rhyme, the text is faithful to Scripture as it answers a childish question-where do angels sleep? The answer is that angels do not sleep, but are always serving God by guarding us as we sleep and play. The text and art combine to convey a message of peace and comfort, while at the same time communicate that the God who made our world and everything in it is the same God who watches over us and cares for us as we sleep. This picture book for young children can be used by parents as part of the childs bedtime ritual. The text makes a wonderful transition to bedtime prayers, as the parent and child pray together, let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe have no power over me.
