I just finished having a lovely conversation with Roma Downey. Yes, the beautiful, sweet angel from Touched By an Angel! It’s fun to talk to someone you watched on television for years. She was a lot of fun. She spoke about how it’s so important that we have ways to tell stories to our children, to talk about the great heroes of the Bible, and to interact with them about what’s going on in their lives. Good stuff!
For the past couple of years, Roma’s been working on a new project. This soon-to-be-released DVD series for preschoolers entitled Little Angels is near and dear to her heart. Here’s a brief rundown of what it’s all about …
Discover the joy of learning and friendship with this season’s most heavenly new collection! From executive producer Roma Downey (“Touched by an Angel”) comes a fresh, faith-based educational series that children and their parents (and grandparents!) can enjoy together in LITTLE ANGELS, soaring onto DVD November 1 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Roma Downey stated, “For many years I had the privilege of playing an angel on television, bringing a message of God’s love to millions of Americans. As a mother, I have longed to be part of a project that would help to bring that same message to children through the foundations of education. “Little Angels” does just that. It is critical learning skills through the lens of timeless and age-appropriate Bible stories. I only wish this series had been available when my kids were younger!”
LITTLE ANGELS is an animated DVD series created exclusively for preschool-aged children to teach not only practical learning skills, like ABCs and numbers, but also to introduce them to the spiritual, moral and ethical principles of the Bible.
Pre-school twins Alex and Zoe are blessed to have eight Little Angels watching over them – literally! These Little Angels “live” on the ceiling of their bedroom, painted there so they are the first things the kids see when they wake up in the morning and the last thing they see before they fall asleep at night. The angels come to life when the children need them most, helping guide them through the challenges of their young lives.
Sounds fun, right? Well, you can find out for yourself! You can find out all about Little Angels at their website, www.LittleAngels.com .
