Heaven is for Real for Kids Review & Giveaway
I have had this book for months as part of the Tommy Nelson Mommy program. I have really had a hard time bringing myself to open the book. Yes, I know it sounds very silly for a grown woman, wife, and mother of four to be scared of a book! I believe in Jesus and heaven, but I guess sometimes I try to put the whole idea of death out of my head. Again I know it’s silly not to embrace the wonder and splendor or heaven, but as a realist I do not like to think of the unknown. I have so many questions related to death and heaven. I’m a planner and goal-setter and the unknown can just make me a bit crazy and uneasy. I am very thankful God answer’s prayer and I can rely on his grace and strength.
TODAY I finally brought myself to open the book and read it. I feel so much more at peace. I think I would be able to use this book as a tool to share Jesus and heaven with my two youngest sons. I can feel the tenderness and attention to detail that the Burpo family took in depicting Colton’s trip to heaven. Surprising that the images are similar to what I have envisioned in the past. I am very thankful to have Heaven is for Real for Kids as a resource to share when talking about heaven with adults or children.
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 an 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, he shares his experiences in first person and comments on things that will be important to kids. A letter to parents is included to guide them as they talk to their children about heaven. Scripture along with a Q&A section with answers from the Bible are also included in the book.
I plan to use the free coloring sheets that go along with this book and possibly look into the Sunday School Curriculum for a future year of homeschool Bible.
Your chance to win Heaven is for Real for Kids:
This book was provided for free as part of the Tommy Nelson Mommy Program. I was not compensated for my review and all opinions are my own.
Thanks for the giveaway! My daughter is only 3, so we haven’t delved too far into religion, but certainly anticipate doing it as she gets older!
I have this book, and it was life changing for me. I have passed it on to others as well. I love to include my children in the adventure of learning about Heaven. We have had family and pets die and this has spurred many conversations about Heaven and death. ‘This is not our home’ is what I like to tell them, that we are just passing through, but everything we do matters, and we should do everything for His glory alone.
Thank you for sharing the reminder of “This is not our home”. Great encouragement.
Three is a wonderful age to share what you believe. Child-like faith is where true understanding begin.
I absolutely LOVE this book!

I need to have this talk still.
