Angel in City Park is the story of a young child’s ability to make a difference in her community by award-winning author Jan Thornton Jones.

While sitting in church with her family, Sadie hears this scripture. “For I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me water…when you did it to these, my brothers, you were doing it to me…” On the way home from church on a bitterly cold and snowy night, Sadie sees a fire in the park and discovers for the first time there are people without homes who may be cold and hungry. With her mother’s help, Sadie takes some food and a warm blanket to the park and leaves them at the stone statue of an angel. The word is spread at school and soon other children and adults in the community begin to do the same. Has Sadie served an angel in disguise by spreading the word about the needs of the homeless people in the park?
