My Favorite Picture Books: Angel in the Waters

Angel in the Waters by Regina Doman, pictures by Ben Hatke

I've written about this book before, but not as part of My Favorite Picture Books, and it certainly deserves a place among them. Today is a perfect day as it is the Feast of the Guardian Angels and we'll be celebrating by reading it together.

It is a sweet way to introduce to children the idea of a guardian angel, one who will watch over and help guide us for our entire lives and into the next life.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this day, be at my side,
To light and guard, rule and guide.
Amen.
