LGB A Blessing From Above



Every night before she goes to sleep, a kangaroo prays under the stars for a baby to love and hold.

A beautiful story about adoption—and how each child is a blessing.

Every night before she goes to sleep, a kangaroo prays under the stars for a baby to love and hold. One day, as she rests under a tree, a baby bird falls out of its crowded nest—plop!—right into her pouch!

Now, every night before they fall asleep, Momma-Roo and Little One thank God for all their blessings . . . but especially for each other.

The book closes with a quote from Ephesians 1:5: “In love he destined us for adoption to himself. . . .”

About the author

Patti Henderson

When Golden Books launched in 1942 at 25 cents each, they changed publishing history. For the first time, children's books were high quality and low-priced. They were available to almost all children, not just a privileged few. Since then, over two billion Golden Books have reached the hands of children all over the world. Many famous writers and illustrators created Golden books and today they are a worldwide icon.
