TOS Crew Review: Guardian Angel Publishing

Guardian Angel Publishing offers a wide range of books in a variety of formats. Each title is offered in a pdf ebook, an ebook CD, and a print version. Some books are available on DVD and still others as a kids' play book that can be viewed on an mp3 player or iPod.

This is a story about a shepherdess that finds a sad rainbow and helps it to get its color back. The illustrations are done in fiber art. At the end of the book there are four pages of instructions on how to make Felting for Fun activities to do with your kids.

The young flamingos in this book are the wrong color and wonder if they really are flamingos until they find out it can take a while to turn pink. This one is offered as a $2.99 app for your touch screen iPods and iPhones.

A book about the bones of the human body set in rhyme
Part of a series on a boy and an albino horse

A book all about earthquakes complete with charts, graphs, and colorful illustrations.

Guardian Angel Publishing has done a fantastic job of offering a large list of book titles in a variety of formats. What a great way to offer books in a way that people can use them best. I think the iPod and iPhone app products are really fun (even more fun if I actually had one!!). What I like best is that the prices for the various formats are really nominal. For example, the pdf ebook format is available for only $5.00. So many times when a print product is offered in an electronic format, the cost is still to high in my opinion. However, $5 is a reasonable fee to see the book on your computer and a price I'd be willing to pay for a book product without the physical book to enjoy.


  • pdf ebook format $5.00
  • ebook on CD $9.95 plus $5.95 in shipping
  • print paperbook book $10.95 plus $5.95 in shipping
  • DVD book video $9.95 plus $5.95 in shipping
  • app store when available $2.99
I wasn't sure what to expect in an ebook and so much of what we have received as Crew Members has been electronic. However, I'm pleasantly surprised to see these book offerings in a range of media. The content of the books I reviewed is really nice and I will definitely revisit the site to see if there is a title that matches something we are working on in our school. These products get a hearty thumbs up!
