Angelo is about an elderly Italian man named Angelo, who works on architecture buildings by restoring their beauty. One day while working on a building he stumbled upon a bird nest with a bird in it that appeared to be hurt. He told himself that he would only take the bird to find her help. While on his walk home, he did not find anyone to care for the bird, so he brought the bird home. As time went on, Angelo helped heal the bird and off she went. Before the bird flew off, he named her Sylvia. Sylvia did not go very far. She always stayed close by to watch Angelo. As more time went on, Sylvia noticed that Angelo was becoming slower and slower at his work as he was getting very old. Sylvia would come by and help Angelo with his work and dip his rag in cold water for him. Angelo knew his age was catching up to him, but all he wanted to do was finish his last project on restoring this old church. He finally finishes and he made sure to add one special touch to it. He leaves behind in the spot where he found Sylvia with sticks, and a feather to remember her. No other worker touches this as they work on it in the future time. This was a very heart touching story and I truly enjoyed reading this book. While reading it, I almost felt like myself was Angelo and formed the relationship with Sylvia. ( )

"Angelo" is about a nice elderly Italian man who restores old churches and nurtures an injured pigeon back to health. The story is gentle and highlights compassion and appreciating the finer things in life. The illustrations are creative and add depth to the book. There is much more to the story than just the printed words, and there are delightful discoveries to be found on every page. ( )

This poignant story of an artist and a wounded pigeon reveals the craft of architectural restoration as Angelo works high above the rooftops of Rome, restoring the façade of a once glorious church. Among the sticks and feathers to be cleared away, Angelo discovers a wounded bird. Finding no safe place to leave her, Angelo becomes the bird’s reluctant savior. As his work on the church nears completion, Angelo begins to worry about the future of his aviary friend. “What will become of you? Where will you go . . . where will you . . . live?” he asks her. Angelo's solution for his friend touches a reader's heart.
