From Our Editors

 

Meet the Little Angels, young girls who help others in need so that they can earn their "Angelwings." In April Flowers: Spring Special from the AngelWings series, the Little Angel of Understanding shows Maggie how to make her lonely grandmother feel more welcome when she tells the family that she's moving into their home for good. Donna Jo Napoli is the award-winning author of other books for children, including Stones in Water and other Angelwings titles, such as No Fair! and Playing Games.
