Heaven Is For Real For Kids Book Review

Book Review of Heaven Is For Real For Kids as told by Colton Burpo
"A Little Boys Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back."

     I chose this book mainly for Lauryl, since I had heard such positive reviews about the prequel novel to this children's edition.  This book is in the words of four year old Colton Burpo.  At the time, Colton was in the hospital, when Jesus came and took him briefly to Heaven.  His account of Heaven fairly lines up with Scripture and is acceptably convincing that he was actually there.  Renowned artist Wilson Ong illustrated this beautiful book.  I was very impressed with the colors, and talent in which each page is divinely painted.  This book is sure to draw in and keep the attention of little ones.  I would recommend this book to children 0-12 years old. Each page is simply written in Colton's words and along with just as much Scripture.  There is also a Salvation Prayer on the last page, and then additional information on the inside back cover that you won't want to miss.  Moreover, there is a little part entitled Questions Kids Ask About Heaven Is For Real.  
    Lauryl's point of view: "I thought this book was very good.  I loved the colors used in the pictures.  I like the part of the story when Colton talks about looking up at God.  He also describes the gates of Heaven really well.  There is nothing I didn't like about this book.  I would recommend this book to all kids aged 5 and up.  It's a great bedtime story book.  I definitely want to read it again."

I don't purchase a lot of books, but I bought this one with the intention of sharing it with family and friends. I was secretly hoping that this fascinating story would be a good way to witness to a couple of relatives who needed a little convincing that Heaven and God are for real. I had heard about Colton's story and was looking forward to reading more details of his experience and witnessing the afterlife thru the eyes of a child. I totally believed the initial accounts I had heard and expected this book to be awe-inspiring. Sadly, after the first couple of chapters, I knew this was not going to be the case.
