Heaven is For Real, For Kids—A Review

Posted by on November 9, 2011

Many readers will have heard of the original book Heaven is For Real, which though told by the young Colton Burpo, is written for adults. This is the picture book version for children, the story of
a young boy who visited heaven while his parents were in the hospital waiting
room, fearing for his life.

It is a beautiful story told in absolute innocence. And yet, Colton Burpo’s
descriptions mirror much of what is told in scripture, as noted on each page.
It is also fascinating to note the family members he met there, who he’d never
known before, and how they were just what his parents knew them to be.

This is a very nice platform in which to teach your child about heaven—from someone  who knows and can relate to them on their own level. Additionally, I greatly
appreciated the added notes from Colten’s parents, Todd and Sonja Burpo, which
further illuminates the reader on what scripture says about this topic.

I received a copy of this book for free from the Thomas-Nelson Booksneeze efforts in return for an honest review.
