About the book:
If your family loves the Elf on the Shelf and you want to keep the fun going, check out Angel on Assignment. It's a children's activity book that offers a Christian alternative to the elf, teaching children about the angels who watch over them, not just at Christmas but all year long.
"Angels were there from the star to the stone,
When the greatest gift to the world was made known."
The title of this book intrigued me so I requested it for review. We have never participated in "Elf on the Shelf" (that's another post for another day!), but I wanted to see what this "alternative" would be.
I liked the rhyming text of the book, and the above line is my favorite. I feel this book would be helpful to teach children about angels, their importance in the Bible, and their job in our lives today. They aren't just cute figurines or decorations, but that they are real and have significance.
In reading this book, I wasn't exactly clear how this is an alternative to the Elf on the Shelf. It gives instructions at the end of the book on how to make your own angel at the back. I believe it will cause families and children to think about ways that they can help others in their daily lives. It is a nice book to read as a family.
Have a day of blessings!
