Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Littlest Angel's premise is a 4-year-old boy's entrance into heaven, his struggle to fit in among adults who find his childish behavior annoying, and his sadness at being separated from parents, all told from an overtly Christian perspective that may be a bit heavy for young kids and heavy-handed for parents. This may provoke questions or confusion from young children about death or religion, or could trigger fears about abandonment without proper context.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


The Littlest Angel's premise involves the separation of a very young child (presumably by death, as he is in heaven) from his family. Moreover, the child finds it difficult to find adults who are caring or concerned in this environment. This may frighten younger children or provoke questions if it registers.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The Littlest Angel teaches patience, acceptance, and that everyone has something to offer, no matter their age or aptitude. It has a particularly anti-materialist stance with regard to giving.
