"They're all above me," a young child whispers with awe, as she looks skyward to heaven. Of course she's speaking of angels, those magical guardians that children are irresistibly drawn to. In the next page we see a child climbing a tree and reaching for an alluring bunch of cherries as a watchful angel stands below, arms spread, ready to catch the cherry picker if he falls. "Beneath me, before me," the text continues. Page by page we see children sledding, answering questions in school, catching snowflakes on their tongues, as "my father's" Christian angels stand guard close by. Illustrator Barbara Hranilovich complements this tender text with all the richness it deserves in swirling, vivid pictures, seemingly made from chalk and watercolors. The book comes with a read-along cassette tape narrated by Gloria Gaither. (Ages 4 to 8) --Gail Hudson
