The classic Christmas story tells of an adorable little angel who just cannot stay out of trouble in the celestial city. When the Christ child is born, the mischievous angel learns the timeless lesson of giving, a lesson that has long endured as the true spirit of Christmas.

First released in book form in 1946, this story has since appeared in numerous editions. It tells of a small angel who simply can't get with the program no matter how hard he tries until an understanding elder realizes that he is homesick and is able to retrieve a box of his most treasured possessions from "back home." When it comes time for Jesus to be born on Earth, the Littlest Angel gives his precious box to the Baby, but he is worried that God will think his gift too humble. However, God is pleased indeed, and transforms the box into the Star of Bethlehem. The writing style is rather ornate and full of grandiose words and phrases, but some children will love to hear it read aloud. The oil paintings are muted and full of texture, and not at all sentimental. The celestial choir is multicultural, and the Littlest Angel has red shorts peeking out of his robe.

This is just the saddest book I have ever read...a poor little boy who dies and then feels lonely in heaven? Horrible! I can't imagine loneliness in Heaven, or of other heavenly beings being so cruel as to make a poor little boy feel unwanted. Definitely not a picture of the Heaven I believe in, where all little ones (and big ones too!) are loved immensely.

The Littlest Angel will spring into your heart from the pages of this delightful po-up book. This irrepressible character romps through the Celestial City and ponders the perfect gift for the Baby Jesus-and delights parents and children year after year. It's my personal favorite.

This is the sweetest Christmas tale ever. The art work is exceptional as well. It is the story of a little boy who finds himself in heaven right before the Christ is born.
