Angels on Your Side by best-selling children’s author Marty Machowski helps fearful children by reassuring them with biblical stories about God’s army of angels complete with 3D imagery.

When children are scared by a storm, afraid of the dark, or wake up from a bad dream, how can you remind them of God’s protection and love? When a storm keeps Logan up one night at Grandpa’s house, Grandpa comforts him with stories about angels in the Bible who are ever at the Lord’s command.  When an incredibly powerful angel is on your side, there’s no reason to be scared or worried!

Logan’s Grandpa teaches him that not only are angels real, but God uses his mighty warriors to guard him. Logan learns that God’s angels are an invincible army fighting on our behalf in the strength of the Lord. Young readers will learn along with Logan that angels are watching over us and are always on our side.

  • Uses 3D illustrations by Rommel Ruiz to depict the spiritual realm.
  • Two sets of 3D glasses come with each book.
  • Will become a favorite bedtime story, helping children ages 4–7 remember the best way to combat our fears is to take them to God.

A sweet little book, uniquely illustrated. This is one parents will return to again and again and one that children will want to hear over and over. I especially appreciate how Marty moves the story from angels to Jesus and his cross and resurrection.” 
Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY; author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, Praying the Bible, and Family Worship 

“Marty’s talent for exceptional storytelling never ceases to amaze me. Angels on Your Side will usher into the hearts of fearful children a calm reassurance of God’s protection. A must-read for every child who struggles with fear and anxiety.”
Ginger Hubbard, Author of Sam and the Sticky Situation: A Children’s Book About Whining and Chloe and the Closet of Secrets: A Children’s Book about Lying; cohost, Parenting with Ginger Hubbard podcast

“Angels on Your Side is more than just a great book to read to an anxious child during a thunderstorm—it's a celebration of God's sovereign care for his people through angels, ending with a powerful presentation of the gospel. Add in 3D glasses and bold illustrations, and this book is bound to be a hit with kids.”
Kate Hox, Author of Who Is Jesus? 40 Pictures to Share with Your Family

“We all want our children to know the ‘breadth and length and height and depth’ of God’s love for them. Angels On Your Side: When You’re Feeling Scared makes the scope of God’s care and protection come alive in all its dimensions! This latest children’s book by best-selling author Marty Machowski paints a theology of angels using the brilliant 3D designs of master illustrator Rommel Ruiz. Dazzle your kids with the gospel truth and the beauty of God’s protecting love.”
Champ Thornton, Author of The Radical Book for KidsThe Serpent Slayer and the Scroll of Riddles,and Why Do We Say Good Night?

“‘I'll have to see it to believe it.’ That's the philosophy of so many in our world. But the Bible reminds us that much of the real world God created is beyond our sight. Though invisible to us, God's messengers relay prayers to his throne, ministering spirits guard young children, and great battles are fought with evil dragons thrown down in defeat. In Angels on Your Side, Marty Machowski and Rommel Ruiz use clear prose, engaging illustrations, and 3D glasses (!!) to introduce children to God's sovereignty, his providential care, and the spiritual realm where God's army is invisibly but powerfully deployed. What a fun and important book!”
Jared Kennedy, Editor, The Gospel Coalition; author of The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible and Keeping Your Children's Ministry on Mission

    Angels on your side 3d

    Posted by Thomas on 11 13 2023

    Held my grandchildren’s attention from start to finish. The 3D art was fantastic. My grandchildren were grabbing at the pages because the pictures looked real. It was also wonderful that you ended with the Angel at the empty tomb and explaining the gospel.

    Angels On Your Side

    Posted by Miriam Jacob on 08 19 2023

    "Angels On Your Side" by Marty Machowski is a very inspiring book for children about the divine presence of Angels and their dramatic protection at God's explicit command. The graphic illustrations by Rommel Ruiz draws our rapt attention and captures our vivid imagination to make Logan's story spring to life in a most awesome way. The turbulent storm and Grandpa's calming presence, coupled with his expert storytelling skill, add to the solemn ambience of the atmosphere. This book reminds us of the glorious fact that God controls all the storms of our lives and His angels watch over us all the time. We don't ever need to worry or fear about the fearsome army trying to scare us when God's angel armies are defending us constantly. I heartily recommend this brilliantly illustrated book to win the hearts of children worldwide.
