Move over Elf on the Shelf, make room for the sweetest Christmas tradition that will ever enter your home! What if an angel descended from above to teach your child the REAL meaning of Christmas? What if this angel took your child on a journey back in time to meet baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and even… Santa?
My Secret Angel and Me is a magical book and angel doll that helps families explain the real meaning of Christmas to their little ones in such a precious and enchanting way. My Secret Angel and Me was written and illustrated by local moms, Ashley Adorno and Rachel Hernandez. They were searching for a way to tie in Santa and Jesus and were truly inspired by God. This book has the most beautiful illustrations I have seen in a children’s book, you can almost feel the magic coming off the pages. What I love most about it is the focus on Jesus and tying it into your family by the angel who visits God every night. It’s brilliant and beautiful all in one fell swoop!
