Children's Book Review: An Angel in the Sky by Sheila Booth-Alberstadt


A beautiful book written from-the-heart and designed for both children and adults.

An Angel In The Sky, without a doubt, will help bring peace and comfort when trying to comprehend the essence of death and dying. Its reassuring, universal message is brilliant, compelling and compassionate. It will leave you with a hug on every page.

An Angel In The Sky is a true original and has been highly recommended for every household around the world!

My Review:

5 stars out of 5

This is a very touching book that deals with death and dying, written especially for children.  If your child ever asked you about a loved one who has taken ill or passed away and what happens to them, this is a great book to have on hand to read to them.  Through the use of their guardian angel, they will be consoled with the thought that their loved one is in heaven, and a better place and that one day they will be together again.

In addition, this book can bring comfort to parents who have lost their children and are trying to come to terms with why this happened. 

This book will warm your heart and fill you will hope and help with the healing process, if you are a parent or child alike.  With the beautiful illustrations of guardian angels and Heaven, you will be transported to a wonderful place.  I highly suggest picking up this book and having it on hand to help talk with parents and children about death and dying.

About the Author:

Sheila Booth-Alberstadt is a full-time parent, successful businesswoman and now, an accomplished children’s book author. Mother of six, she handed the thriving insurance agency she built, Booth-Alberstadt Insurance Agency/Farmers Insurance Group in Daphne, Alabama, to her husband and chose to stay home with her children. Until the birth of her fourth child, she home schooled the kids. Each of Booth-Alberstadt’s children’s books addresses vital children’s issues, from the mundane, like dealing with tangled hair or making good choices, and the extraordinary, like death and dying.

Booth-Alberstadt has two books available, the newly re-released An Angel in the Sky, and her most recent book, the delightfully winsome Maggie McNair has Spiders in her Hair. That title based on her all-too-real and all-too-common experience taking control of a child’s unruly tangles. She has two forthcoming books, The Day I Met Santa, inspired by Santa-America’s visits to children in hospital and at home and Under the Crybaby Tree, about children dealing with their parent’s poor choices. Booth-Alberstadt has also been commissioned to write a book for Auntie Litter, a multi-award winning national non-profit dedicated to training children in environmental stewardship through fun, innovative and interactive programs.

She hopes her books help kids beyond the usual kids’ picture books. “I feel that being a child is more difficult than being an adult. My goal is to create a series of self-help books designed to give encouragement and direction when dealing with our everyday issues in life…and to leave a powerful message of hope,” said Booth-Alberstadt.
