Gabby's Stick-To-It Day by Sheila Walsh
This book has the sweetness of the Precious Moments figurines that were so popular when I was growing up. Gabby is an engaging little angel, determined to take care of Sophie and help her to live a positive life. Sophie, too, is a likeable character. She seems goodhearted and genuine in wanting to help others; she just has a hard time following through when things get a bit tough or messy. It's hard to see this being a mainstream crossover success (in terms of being a bestseller), but I can easily see it resonating with parents looking for an explicitly Christian series to read together with their children.
Find it at IndieBound.
