Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
The only thing lucky about Jeremiah Lucky is his name. But on his way to school one day, he finds a lucky penny; and that's when things start to change for him. After realizing he'd forgotten his library books and his field-trip permission slip, a peculiar little man appears and announces that he's Jeremiah's guardian angel. Angus McDermit, as the angel is called, helps Jeremiah make good choices while coming to understand and accept that things in life don't always have to be perfect, even himself.
Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel is suggested for youth ages 7-10 and skillfully addresses such issues as latchkey children, dealing with death and loss, and kids being raised by a single parent. This book is a quick and easy read and is recommended for classroom reading and for home and school libraries.
