I loved everything about this book. The story, the illustrations, and the font as well. When I am reading a children's book, I am looking for the following criteria:

Is the story a good one

Are the pages too "busy"

Can the targeted reader read the book by themselves with minimal assistance

I am happy to report that this book met all of these criteria points. The story was a lovely one. The illustrations were simple, fun, bright, and not too busy, and young readers could read this book by themselves

Whenever a Child is Born delivers such a sweet and stirring message. A new baby brings joy and excitement, not only to family and friends, but heaven rejoices as well. And a special ingredient is also added—the little one is watched over and loved by their very own guardian angel. It’s encouraging for parents to remember they are not alone when raising their children, for God provides angel helpers.

With charming full-page illustrations and fun, lilting verse, this uplifting book entertains young

Whenever a Child is Born is a sweet children's book about guardian angels. It has beautiful illustrations that make the story come to life and seem even more magical and wonderful. The story will appeal to young children because it does have a hopeful, comforting message, and I think we could all use some of that right about now. Who doesn't love the thought of being loved and protected by a guardian angel throughout their life? The book also showcases the excitement and joy the angels feel when ...more

Beautiful, Faith-Filled, Story for Families. I think this is the perfect book for Christian families--whether welcoming a new baby into a family with young children or introducing young children to the concept of angels and guardians. My in-laws shared similarly themed thoughts and sentiments when each of our daughters were born--making this book bring extra smiles as we read.

Simple Illustrations and Text Share Deeper Messages. For those of us believing in angels and gifts from God--the lovely

I received a complimentary copy of this book from iRead Book Tours.
I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Whenever a Child Is Born by Nancy Diedrich is a beautifully written story that I can see prominently displayed and used in any religious-based school or household. It speaks of angels and the heavens and how guardian angels watch over and guide us from a child’s first breath to every moment after.

Whenever a Child Is Born expresses the joy a child brings into this world. I ha

Whenever a Child Is Born by Nancy Diedrich is a wonderful children’s book. It shows the beauty of the birth of a sweet baby. The earth eagerly waits and becomes brighter, colorful and joyful. It teaches little ones how precious of a gift they truly are. Each child is born with their very own special guardian angel and will never be alone through life. I like that each page has two lines followed by the following page using two lines that rhyme with the first two. It flows very well. I believe ch ...more

The best kinds of book for children in my opinion are ones that comfort/calm/ teach, or show them how to be a good person. The book will comfort and calm your child.

The story is about each child having a Guardian Angel from the time they are born that will watch over them. It will help them not be afraid of the dark or going to bed alone, etc. and give them a sense of safety. That’s very important, especially with all that’s going on in the world right now.

The words are very easy to read. They a

Whenever a Child Is Born is a heartwarming tale about family, guardian angels, and love.

Have you ever wanted a chance to indirectly tell your children that they'll never be alone through beautifully-drawn pictures and words?

This book is the one, lemme tell you! The art style is adorable, with simple sentences attached. In my opinion, I don't think the design is overly complicated. It gives good bedtime-story vibes.

One issue, which is pretty personal to me, would be that it mostly talked about g

If you love giving baby gifts that will be treasured, you will want to consider giving this book at the next baby shower you attend. Whenever A Child Is Born is such a beautifully written and illustrated book and new parents will love receiving it. The artwork and message are both lovely.

The book has full page pictures and rhyming poetry. The book tells about what happens when a new baby is born. It focuses on the wonderful truth of each baby having a guardian angel. As all Heaven rejoices when

Whether spending reading time with your kids or letting them read alone, ‘Whenever A Child Is Born’ is a delightful picture book for toddlers and preschoolers. The illustrations are colorful and creatively express the verses on every page. In spite of it being written in free verse poetry, it is written simply and can easily be understood by preschoolers.

I like how the thought of the story runs spontaneously from beginning to end as it tells how the earth and the angels in heaven feel whenever a

This is such a special book! Sweet rhyming text and mesmerizing illustrations offer a glimpse of what might happen when a baby is born, and it's a story for both children and their parents. Little ones will be thrilled to know that they have their own special angel and their parents will feel assured that there's always someone guarding their precious children.

Author Nancy Diedrich and illustrator Chris Diket completely capture the joy that comes from having children and they both understand wh

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Whenever a Child Is Born is a beautifully illustrated book that is told in rhymes. It’s about our guardian angels being with us from the time we are born and staying with us throughout our lives. It’s comforting to know that our children are never truly alone because they will always have their guardian angel.

I especially liked the last few pages which say:

Totally adorable! What a beautiful story to help small children feel loved and protected. “Whenever a child is born, the angels dance and sing.” And it reassures parents that their baby is a special gift from heaven. The child will always be watched over by its own guardian angel.

The language is simple and the illustrations truly precious.

My only negative comment is that it is not gender neutral. It could have alternated references to “him” and “her”.

Perfect gift for the expectant parent.

WHENEVER A CHILD IS BORN by Nancy Diedrich is a very sweet book that truly gives hope and a feeling of comfort. I love that the nature of the book is perfect for kids as it is great for children who are going to become a big brother or sister. I loved the pictures! Overall, a very cute book.
