Angels are Everywhere

Inspiring, Colorful, Creative!

Angels are Everywhere

Great language arts resource and homeschooling project

Buy Angels are Everywhere

A unique resource rated “excellent” by parents and teachers alike. Despite having to spend months at a time at C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital, young patients with serious diseases brought their passion, hopes, and dreams to life. From sports, to careers, to enjoying the seasons of the year, each child used everyday materials to create angels that reflected their individual personalities and determination to live life to its fullest. The project emphasized art, science, and discovery, as well as dramatic play, making this book of angels an extraordinary example of what parents and teachers can do with their kids both at home and in a classroom setting.

“What fine imaginations these young patients have — a bundle of courage that subtly help my kids overcome their youthful fears.”
“A must-have book with endless opportunities for learning. We created our own Angel Art Packs.”
“Truly inspirational — teaches children how to live each moment with courage and determination. Great starter for a journal page.”

Theodore - The Culprit was a Fly
Theodore dreams up outrageous ways to get a pesky fly off his sandwich — from making silly noises and faces to scooping up the fly in a fishing net to threatening to pay his little sister to talk the fly to death. But in the end, he realizes that using good manners might just do the trick.
