Blog Tour: Gabby's Stick With It Day (Review)

Gabby is back, ready to conquer the day - or at least Sophie's decision to quit jobs without finishing them.

But Gabby, the little guardian angel, has a plan. She wants to share with Sophia that God wants her to stick to it - and finish her job, even when it gets tough.

Using this passage from Galatians 6:9 (NCV) as the basis of the story, Sheila Walsh has created a story that truly focuses on perseverance. 

Using a study of a passage in Matthew, Walsh has created a series of books (this is book two) that teaches children that God has angels watching out for them.

This story is simple - Sophia learns the importance of finishing a task. The illustrations, created by Natasha Kuricheva, are beautiful and whimsical.

If you have a young child who needs to learn how to stick with it, this book will at least give you something to start them talking - especially when Sophia sticks with her task even when her brother throws spaghetti at her.

On the scale of one to five, I give it a solid three and a half. I love collecting children's picture books. This book is going into my collection - which also means it might eventually be used during a preschool chapel. 

About The Book:
Gabby is a little guardian angel with a big job to do! Watching over Sophie is hard work, but Gabby knows that God wants her to stick to it.

Gabby, God’s Little Angel, flies to the rescue as Sophie attempts to help others but has a little trouble sticking with things. Sophie tries to be helpful by washing the family dog for her mom, but she gives up when she’s the one who ends up all wet. She then tries to be kind by reading to her little brother, but he has plans of his own, which include a splash of cereal right in Sophie’s face! When Sophie is ready to quit once again, it’s up to Gabby to encourage her to keep trying and to teach her what the Bible says about perseverance: “We must not become tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NCV)
