About this project

Angel Birthdays is a children's book that redefines the day we lose a loved one by celebrating it as an Angel Birthday.  This book gives children tangible activities to heal their own hearts and provides parents with the words to say.

In this illustrated kid-friendly story, Gracie and Kate decide to throw an Angel Birthday party to celebrate their Grandma’s Angel Birthday.  They buy balloons and pens and write Happy Angel Birthday notes to their Grandma and release the balloons into the sky. They bake Grandma’s favorite cake, light candles and sing Happy Angel Birthday loud enough for the angels to hear.   The presents for the party are memory boxes.  The kids decorate them and fill them with treasures that remind them of how much their Grandma loved them.

Angel Birthdays is the perfect book for boys, girls and the child in all of us.  This story brings reassurance and healing to hearts of all ages.

Your support will help us complete the book, print the first run and bring Angel Birthdays to life. 

Thank YOU so much for supporting this message,
