Gabby's Stick-To-It Day by Sheila Walsh

According to the Bible, children are watched over by angels. These angels help to keep them safe but also help them to live the best lives they can. Lately Gabby, one of God's little angels, has noticed something about Sophie, the little girl that she watches over. Sophie is a sweet girl, but she gives up on things too easily! Whenever something gets hard, Sophie just quits. Can Gabby do something to show Sophie how important perseverance is?It's not going to be easy, but Gabby isn't going to give up!

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.
