Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel Reviews
I loved the characters, the story and Eric Hammond's illustrations. I completely identified with Jeremiah's forgetfulness and anxieties because I remember them in my oldest son. He would have loved this book at age nine. Not only because of the story, but because the length would have allowed him to feel success in finishing a chapter book. The book is not currently available on Kindle. But you can get it as a PDF from Guardian Angel Publishing for 5.00. http://www.guardianangelpublishing.co...I was given a copy of Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel in PDF in exchange for an honest review.
Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel is a really lovely book! I love the way author Jane Freeman describes the details of Jeremiah’s daily life and his relationship with his mother. Angus McDermit, Jeremiah’s guardian angel, is a delightful character. I think many children will relate to Jeremiah in many ways. I can’t wait to read more chapter books in this series and get to know these characters even better!
Eight-year-old Jeremiahs win the heart of the reader. He tries hard to be grown up but he can't remember everything. When an angel appears to help, things turn around. This story left me feeling happy and hopeful. I recommend it for reading alone or as a read aloud book.
Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' FavoriteJane Ellen Freeman has written a lovely story for preteens called Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel. After Jeremiah’s father died, he tries to be more responsible by helping his mother with the chores. His mother, a nurse, often leaves before Jeremiah wakes and returns after he gets home from school. The eight-year old misses his father so much, and worries about his mother that he begins to forget minor things. While at school, a very tiny man with a red mustache and a shiny bald spot on his head appears out of nowhere and tells Jeremiah that he is his guardian angel. Angus McDermit’s duty is to watch over him, and Jeremiah soon begins to tell this odd looking man his problems. He knows his mother misses his dad too and wonders why he had to die and leave them. Kids display their emotions in many ways after losing a parent. Jane Ellen Freeman creates a thought-provoking portrayal of this in Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel. She shows how Jeremiah matured by his thoughtful actions at home, and how forgetful he was with certain school activities. He worried a lot but did not think the adults around him noticed. The story is also educational as the author included a very informative tour of a fort, which I enjoyed as much as Jeremiah. Her characters are nice, and Angus was definitely a comfort and gentle guiding light in Jeremiah’s life. I recommend this book to preteens, knowing they will enjoy it.
Jane Ellen FreemanLike many kids, Jeremiah worries. And like most kids, although he does his best, he sometimes makes mistakes. When he does, he feels less than lucky. After losing his father to a fire, he is also sad. But one day, Jeremiah Lucky finds a lucky penny and things start looking up. Author Jane Ellen Freeman’s tale is a sweet story that not only sparks the imagination, but also touches on topics such as grief, responsibility, and keeping one’s promises. Ms. Freeman has done a lovely job depicting Jeremiah’s tender relationship with his mother. Kids will certainly relate to Jeremiah’s struggle to remember all the things he needs to for school. And Angus, the guardian angel, is so charming with his leprechaun looks and sage advice. If only we all had a guardian angel! Although, perhaps we might—if we listen hard enough. Jeremiah Lucky and the Guardian Angel is a chapter book that will appeal to children ages 7-10.
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.
