Review: An Angel Named Carol

Posted on July 28, 2011


An Angel Named Carol
By John L. Hoh, Jr.
Illustrated by Carolos Lemos
Mirror Publishing
December 2010
30 pages

Carol is a shy and lonely angel with a beautiful singing voice. The other angels want to do something special to announce the birth of baby Jesus. They decide to form a heavenly choir. They ask Carol to sing her special song. As much as she wants to, she doesn’t believe she can do it. Hoh’s delightful story is a whimsical take on a Christmas tradition with a valuable message about self-esteem. Lemos’ colorful illustrations portray warm, human qualities in the angelic characters that small children will find comforting. Children ages 4-8 who like Bible stories will enjoy this book.
