TV Angel Roma Downey’s ‘Little Angels Bible Storybook’

First she was an angel on TV, and then she created the Little Angels DVD series for preschoolers. Now, Roma Downey is releasing a companion book to the DVD series.

The Little Angels Bible Storybook is a first Bible for children,” Downey told me when we spoke by phone, “It’s designed to lovingly guide children through the main stories of the Bible.”

The characters from the DVD serve as guides to the stories. Alex and Zoe are four year old twins. Their nursery has a mural of angels on the ceiling and when the adults leave, the angels pop down to teach the children moral and practical lessons. In the books, they present the stories in age appropriate ways.

“My favorite part is the anchor,” Downey told me. That’s the lesson at the end that helps a child apply the wisdom of the story to their own life. Each story ends with “I can…, I pray…, and I will…” It’s designed for a parent to discuss the story and pray with their child as they tuck them in at night.

Downey says the quality of the book was important to her as well. “It’s charming, beautiful and bright,” she says. Plus, it’s designed to be easily cleaned in response to sticky little fingers.

Downey’s own children are grown, but she takes special pride in this project. “I have come through raising my own kids. These are tools I would have loved when raising my own children….It’s a great world to have created.”

The Little Angels Bible Storybook is newly released from Tyndale and is available at Christian book stores and online.

    My daughter loves her storybook bibles. It would be great to have another to add to our collection.

    This sounds like a wonderful tool for children. I would love to give this to my niece who has 7 children – four of whom are preschoolers. So often reading material offered to children is not Biblical and God’s love is what we all need. Thank you, Roma Downey for caring about the little ones.

    My sons LOVE their Little Angels movies they own. My 2 year old requests to watch them all the time. We don’t own the Bible Storybook yet, and we would love to win a copy to read together with our sons. Thank you for the chance!

  • Katie Hayden

    The little angels are quite the hit in our home – my son just adores them!

  • Jodi

    My son is almost 3 and loves his Jesus Storybook Bible. We would love another storybook Bible to tell him more about our King in ways he would be interested in and understand! Thanks

    I loved watching Roma Downey on Touched by an Angel and would get great joy out of reading this to my granddaughter and also to my preschool/Kindergarten class in Sunday School. I think all of them would understand the Bible if they heard it told from this one in particular.

    This would be absolutely amazing to give to my 2yr old princess for Christmas or maybe before. Every night before bed she freaks out if she thinks i’m forgetting “Chee-sus” or Jesus LoL I have read her bibles and other books over and over and over. While I love the various stories of Jesus, It would greatly benefit my sanity to have a new one :0)
