Reviews

"What a beautiful book! In these few glorious pages, children--and adults--get an amazing picture of our God's protection and provision as well as a story that's sure to prompt important conversations about facing fears, welcoming strangers, loving others, and being held by our good God." -- Caryn Rivadeneira "author of Grit and Grace: Heroic Women of the Bible"
"With winsome narrative and evocative images, Adriana's Angels shows God's tender care for children among the millions of refugees in today's world. Accessible even to the very young, this real-life story will be instructive and heartwarming for all ages." -- J. Nelson Kraybill "President, Mennonite World Conference"
"A gentle story that any child in a new or strange place will find comforting." -- Dave & Neta Jackson "authors of Trailblazer Books, The Yada Yada Prayer Group, and Windy City Neighbors series"
"Adriana's Angels gives immigrant children words to express their experiences, and other children compassion for what their peers are going through. This book captures the excitement and dissonance of a bicultural experience while incorporating the deep faith of a community." -- Rev. Sandra Maria Van Opstal "author of The Next Worship, Executive Pastor of Grace and Peace Community in Chicago, and daughter of a Colombian"
"This book offers comfort and confidence for children and adults alike, reminding them that God is always present in life's difficult journeys." -- Curtiss Paul DeYoung "Executive Director, Community Renewal Society, Chicago"
"Meza's vivid cartoon illustrations, particularly the statuesque angels and their resplendent wings, provide welcome brightness in a story that doesn't sugarcoat the difficulties of adjusting to a new country and culture." -- Publishers Weekly "Publishers Weekly"
