A Newborn's Conversation with God 😇😇😇A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.." God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy." Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak." "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?" God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray." "Who will protect me?" God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life." "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore." God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you." At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name." God said, "You will simply call her, " Mom ."😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇 ... See MoreSee Less

A Bloggers Question for Nancy Diedrich:

What do you expect when you choose a children's book?

Pictures that beckon, words that engage, and rhymes that you sing together with your kid. Nancy Diedrich's Whenever a Child is Born has all this and more.

As a parent, I like this book not only because of how it would fascinate a child, but also because it would resonate with the parents too. In a subtle, unobvious way, this book allays your fears (and this applies to both the children and the parents) even as you enjoy the words that celebrate the birth of a new child. In 30 pages, you experience the reactions of animals and birds, and nature and heaven welcoming your little one.

My kids are kind of grown up now, but as a parent, I still felt good having read it. As I read out a couple of couplets to my kid (always a kid for me, as I keep telling him), he smiled too - was it with me (with happy emotions), or at me (for my behaving like a child), I chose not to question.

I did tell him that he'd have adored the book if I had read it to him a few years ago. I did, of course, find pleasure in the illustrations and especially the happiness evident in the eyes. But what I love is the fact that this book left me with a feeling of peace and security.

Children's Book 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 have children of my own, and watching their milestones play out has been a high point in my life.

For parents of young readers, some children should be able to decipher individual words such as animal names and their sounds. Even if a child hasn’t learned to read yet, you can always point to a particular animal and ask what sound it makes.

While the story was cute, Chris Diket (the illustrator) must get credit for creating all those endearing images. His style reminded me of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes’ drawings.

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. There were not a lot of "big" words. The font made it simple to read. I would recommend this book to young readers. Although, this is a book that the whole family with enjoy reading together.

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 whenever a child is born. They eagerly anticipate which one of them will be chosen to follow the child along their life's journey.

I do think this is the type of book everyone can enjoy, regardless of their beliefs. 5 stars!

Bound For Escape

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: “You give your child complete love. Your angel gives complete love too. Guardian angels love with a heavenly love. Their gift to your baby and you. All children are gifts of love.”

Although this is a children’s picture book, it would be a perfect gift for new parents to cherish until their child is old enough to read it or be read to.

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 children will want to read it or have it read aloud over and over again. I loved it.

Whenever a Child Is Born is visually colorful by the talents of Chris Diket. Their illustrations perfectly bring the story to life. It helps little ones to hold their attention and follow along on every single page. The illustrations are so sweet and a pure delight to look at.

I am going to give Whenever a Child Is Born a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who are between the ages of four and eight years old. It would be a perfect addition to any children’s library, as well as, a church library. I would love to see more books like this one by Nancy Diedrich in the future.
