Book Description

Andrew doesnt want to sleep; he just wants to run and play and make mischief. Andrews guardian angel has to work very hard to keep him safe until he finally snuggles down to sleep. This is a charming bedtime book for all mischievous toddlers that will reassure them that love encircles them all through the day and night.


The author of this book came to our childrens school to visit with them about how to write a book. She personalize and signed the book for both my son and my daughter. It was great to meet her. I happened to be substituting at school that day and she sat and ate lunch with me.

"The Time-for-bed Angel" is about a guardian angel, Sam, who watches over a very mischievous little boy named Andrew. For every mess that Andrew makes, Sam is right behind him to sort everything out.

Cayden: "This book was funny! That boy did some pretty naughty things. Some of that stuff Max and I do! Like Max always squeezes out the toothpaste and I always put all my animals in order on my bed. That angel must be really tired to run around after him! I liked the pictures of all of the things the boy did."

Max: "I look for my bear before bed like the boy did. He has a bear like mine. I squeeze toothpaste on the counter, not on the floor. I liked when he blew bubbles in his milk."

Parents comments:

My boys could completely relate to "The Time-for-bed Angel." As they stated, most of the things that Andrew did in the book they themselves do as well. The illustrations in the book were great and really fun to look at. "The Time-for-bed Angel" by Ronica Stromberg is a wonderful bedtime story!

Ronica Stromberg takes a playful look at what a guardian angel must do to keep up with a child, particularly a little boy named Andrew, in The Time-for-bed Angel. Andrews guardian angel, Sam, watches over him day and night, through all Andrews daily adventures. Andrew is a mischievous lad, who gets himself into all kinds of messes throughout the day that Sam must continually "sort out." By the time Andrew is ready for bed, Sam is too.

The text is minimal. The story starts out, "Andrew could ruffle the feathers of an angel. And he did." The words dont explain whats going on, but the lively illustrations by Kristina Stephenson sure do, as we can see Sam hovering in the background, trying to keep up with his charge.

What I Like: I like a story for young children about angels that is written in a way children can understand. As mentioned, there are very few words, but there are lots of pictures to convey the message clearly that its not easy for a guardian angel to keep up with a young child. Children will understand the message just by looking at the pictures.

And, this is a great bedtime book for little ones.

What I Dislike: I like the story and the illustrations, I just think it would have been nice if the author had included some Biblical reference about angels on the title page.

Age Appeal: 2-5.

Overall Rating: Very good.

Christine M. Irvin - Christian Childrens Book Review
So many bedtime stories have monsters in the closet or monsters under the bed. Even if the authors try to say that these are "good" monsters, children can still be scared by them. I was happy to find "The Time-for-Bed Angel" because it has a angel instead of a monster in the story. The angel is gentle, loving, and sweet. My little girl likes the idea of such an angel caring for her. I think this book can help kids feel good about going to bed. Also, the little boy in the book yawns a couple of times, and everyone knows how catchy that is. I like how the book ends with a snore.
This is a really cute bedtime story about a guardian angel and the busy boy he keeps watch over. My son and I both laughed
