grandma's bookshelf - If I Only Had an Angel - I'm Giving One Away!

Over the nearly two years I've been writing grandma's cookie jar I've reviewed a LOT of books . . . and I've given a LOT away as well! One of the wonderful things about grandma's cookie jar is the amazing people I've met through it! One such person is Lori Layne . . . and she wrote a book which I'm delighted to share with you today!

If I Only Had an Angel 
Author - Lori Layne
Illustrator - J.D. Williams
Publisher - Pleasant Word
Ages - 4+

Favorite Features -
  • Sweet story about a young girl and how she thinks life might be better if only she had a angel - and comes to see how she already has what she needs because God is always with her!
  • Colorful, fun illustrations
  • Introduces children to the sport of "mushing" - sled dog racing.
  • Provides opportunities for grandparents/parents and children to talk about important things - such as how God is always with us!
Lori is a musher and has raced sled dogs across the USA. In this charming story she helps children - and adults think about how God is always with us and how we can experience His blessings as we follow Him each day! This is a message we all need to hear and take to heart! If I Only Had an Angel is a book your grandchildren are sure to enjoy!

I'm very happy to say, not only did Lori give me one book to review, but she is making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for If I Only Had an Angel, which will be on March 2, 2013,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.
