Book Review: Heaven is for Real by Colton Burpo

I had the opportunity to receive an e-book to review and this time it was special because it was a book written for kids so my daughter helped with this review!

Book Description (from Book Sneeze)
Heaven is for real, and you are going to like it!

Colton Burpo came back from his trip to heaven with a very important message: Jesus really, really loves children. In effort to reach even more families with this eternally significant story, this runaway bestseller is now told from Colton—kid to kids! Children will receive the same comfort and assurance that so many adults have received from the trade book.

Beautifully illustrated, under Colton's direction, this book is uniquely written from a child for a child. Colton tells of his experiences in first person and comments on things that will be important to kids. A letter to parents is included to guide them in talking to their children about heaven. Scripture along with Q&A section with answers from the Bible are also included in the book.

Our thoughts:

I received a copy of this book to review from Booksneeze and I used the opportunity to read it to my 4 year old daughter.  Its about 30 pages but had pictures on every page that were entertaining and made it interesting to hear about.  The pictures were great with going along with the story.  Launa was easily entertained and the information and examples sparked a lot of questions from her about heaven and God and there were things we've never talked about before.  I think this book was great for her to hear and to learn from.  It went along nicely with what she is learning in her Kids for Truth program.  Loved it!
