Angels Explained by Children
–Gregory, Age 5
I only know the names of two angels. Hark and Harold.
–Olive, Age 9
Everybody’s got it all wrong. Angels don’t wear halos
anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it.
–Matthew, Age 9
It’s not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then
you go to heaven, and then there’s still the flight
training to go through. And then you got to agree to
wear those angel clothes.
–Mitchell, Age 9
Angels work for God and watch over kids when God
has to go do something else.
–Henry, Age 8
My guardian angel helps me with math, but he’s not
much good for science.
–Jack, Age 6
Angels don’t eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows.
–Daniel, Age 9

The main subject is where you went wrong before you got
–Reagan, Age 10
When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and
counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath,
somewhere there’s a tornado.
Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If
you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your
window and leaves money under your pillow. Then
when it gets cold, angels go north for the winter.
Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son,
who’s a very good carpenter.
All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses
and boys didn’t go for it.
My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got
a big head start on helping me while she was still
down here on earth.
Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal
sick animals and pets. And if they don’t make the
animals get better, they help the child get over it
What I don’t get about angels is why, when
someone is in love , they shoot arrows at them.
