Angels, angels fill the air, coming down from way up there.

Award-winning author Alexis York Lumbard along with world- renowned artist Flavia, transport the reader on a journey to see how angels work behind the scenes weaving their graces throughout the world in this non-denominational picture book aptly called Angels.

Alexis has done something very special in her book “Angels” by showing us that the “angelic realms” are most empowering through their interactions here on earth.

Alexis shows us the gentle wonder, beauty, and comfort in her lyrical text. Flavia’s illustrations are done in delicate, overflowing water colors, inviting every reader into a magical place with caring and kindness.

It is a beautiful book and one that sits on our coffee table or the old radio in the kitchen. I see many people picking up the book to glance at it before they are drawn into it’s beauty and must sit down to read the whole thing.

A Little Bit More About Alexis York Lumbard:

Maybe you remember Alexis from the book-jump we did last winter into her book The Conference of the Birds. She is mom to 3 sweet little girls, and started telling them stories in 2005. She has a B.A. in Religious Studies from George Washington University and it is her sincere hope to bring the wisdom and beauty of the world’s religions to the eager and gifted minds of young children.

A Little Bit More About Flavia Weedn:

Flavia is a prolific award-winning artist and illustrator. She has written and illustrated 17 books, including 10 for children, and her line of greeting cards, translated into many different languages, are sent by over 18 million people each year.
