Circle Network Card Review: Cherub Angel Cards for Children by Doreen Virtue with paintings by Donna Brooks is published by Hay House. The Magnetic closing box is sturdy and good quality and contains an explanatory booklet and 44 child size cards. Each card is titled with a picture of a cherub, many have a multicultural emphasis. Wings, halos, pets and flowers in natural settings are featured on the cards. Children have an affinity for angels and this card deck is suitable for young school aged children and will make a charming gift to stimulate interest and enjoyment.
The information explains how to prepare the cards, clear them with a prayer, fan them and hold them to your heart and ask a question, shuffle and say another prayer (to God, Holy Spirit, Jesus and Mother Mary and Archangel Michael), choose a card and read from the booklet. Explanations are in alphabetic order of the card titles. The easiest method is to choose a card for each day but there is a three card, past, present and future spread. Each card has a 30 - 50 word explanation.
Donna Heath Brooks is an art teacher who lives in Providence, Kentucky and has won awards for her artwork. Doreen Virtue has produced more than 20 card decks including Magical Unicorns Oracle cards and Thank you Angels, both for children. Review: Wendy Stokes
