About the book:
Based on Galatians 6:9, this second title in Gabby’s series follows little Sophie on her quest to do kind things for her family. But each of Sophie’s good intentions results in a great, big mess-and a busy guardian angel as Gabby tries to keep the little girl from harm. Sophie quickly gets frustrated amidst each task and refuses to continue. Little ones will learn an important lesson on perseverance when Gabby whispers words from Galatians 6:9 into Sophie’s ear: “Let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Young hearts will also be reminded of God’s continual protection over them in the form of angels, just as Gabby protects and encourages Sophie.

I fell in love with Gabby in the first book of this series. I was delighted to read this second installment to some very precious little girls in my life. The storyline continually reinforces how important it is to continue to do what is good and right no matter how hard it is or how tired we become.
Sheila Walsh has done a wonderful job of writing this in a manner that is easily understood by little girls. The language is at a level that 3 to 5 year olds can understand, but it is also a delight for the adult to read aloud as well.
Kuddos should also go to Natasha Kuricheva for her beautiful illustrations. I think we spent as much time discussing what was in the pictures as we did on the story itself. The story and the illustrations really do complement each other in this series.
This would be a great addition to any little girl’s library!
