About a year ago a friend handed me the New York Times Best Selling Book, “Heaven Is For Real”. Later that day I casually picked it up to check it out. Before I knew it, I was half way through the book! I literally finished it the next day. It is an INCREDIBLE story! The true story is based on a boy named Colton, who experiences heaven for a short time, while undergoing surgery in the hospital. The experiences he had and some of the facts that he knew at such a young age, confirmed to his skeptical parents that Colton had indeed experienced Heaven.
Because I was so profoundly moved by his story, I was excited to learn recently that it had been adapted in to a version for children. The adapted version is written for children ages 4-8 years old. I love how Colton has taken his story and has adapted it for children in a way that really depicts the way he first shared it as a small child at the age of 3.
Heaven is for Real for kids not only shares Colton’s experience, but it provides scripture that coincides with his story. Parents will also find a letter in the front of the book that gives instruction on teaching their kids about Heaven, and in the back of the book there is a Heaven “FAQ” page and scripture match-up page. There is a Flipbook to take a look at, as well as Coloring Sheets for the kids, and Colton shares a little about the book in this Heaven is for Real for kids Video.
I hope you love it as much as we did!!
