Heaven is For Real for Kids EBook Review

Thank you to Thomas Nelson for letting us review the ebook Heaven is for Real for Kids. 

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.

My Review:
Heaven is for Real for Kids is a beautiful illustration of what is like in heaven and what Colton saw when he was there. This is a true story of a boy that dies and literally goes to heaven. He describes in detail his journey to heaven. We won't know until we get there but Heaven is for Real for Kids  definitely provokes questions about Heaven and what it might look like when we get there.

I have read the adult book and I couldn't put it down, this is why I wanted to review this book.
 I already knew the story line and wanted to share it with our children in a manner that they would understand. 

My children really enjoyed this book. They were fascinated by the angels and God. Although many questions go unanswered this book definitely provokes conversation which is why I love Heaven is For Real.
