Measuring Angels

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Review

Growing a sunflower with someone who is mean to you isn't easy, so the heroine of this book decides to make an angel to watch over her and Sophie's weedy seedling.

As they work together, though, something magical happens: the two little girls make friends and their sunflower grows overnight into a towering, sunny bloom. Is it the angel working its magic, or is it their clever teacher Miss Miles who repairs the girls' friendship by making them work together?

A heartwarming tale with beautiful illustrations that reminds us how good it is to work together.
