“Not everyone gets to visit heaven and come back to earth, but Colton did! When Colton was almost four, he became very sick. His mom and dad took him to the hospital so he could get better, but while he was there an amazing thing happened. Colton closed his eyes, and when he opened them—Jesus was with him!” So begins Colton Burpo’s remarkable true tale. Colton’s parents, Todd and Sonja Burpo, wrote about his experience in Heaven is for Real; now Colton shares his inspiring story in his own words in Heaven is for Real for Kids. Beautifully illustrated and written in a way young children can understand, this comforting book answers questions about what heaven is like and reassures little ones that God is always there for them. All ages.

We purchased this book for our granddaughter, Her Nana went to heaven a couple of years ago. This book has given her an insight to where her Nana lives now!! Excellent book for children from 1-99.

I bought this book to place in the grade school library at Mt Calvary Lutheran School in WI. I read it first of course, and found it to be of great comfort to any child or adult who wonders how people in Heaven really live, whether they get bored, and if there are animals in heaven. I believe this is must reading for all children. They will someday lose a friend or relative and it is important for them to know there is life after death. I think I will order several more of these to give and just leave in my doctors office.
My whole family - kids and adults alike - loves this book! It is clear and the illustrations warm the heart and soul in a childlike way. Ours was actually made upside down and backwards, but the kids won't let me send it back for an exchange. We'll be buying more to share with friends! Great choice!!
