This is a great book that deals with questions that I'm sure many kids have. What color are the angels? Santa Claus? Jesus? When we finished reading this book, I asked Alexis some questions.
Me: "What color do you think angels are?"
Alexis: "I think angels are white."
Alexis: "I just think that is the proper color for angels."
Me: "I think angels come in all colors."
She agreed that angels are probably all colors.
