Book Review: Heaven is Real for Kids by Todd and Colton Burpo

Heaven is for Real, Kids: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and BackHeaven is for Real, Kids: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a synopsis of the Kids Version: 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 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, this book is uniquely written from a child for a child. Colton tells of his experiences in first person and comments on things that will be important to kids.  A letter to parents is included to guide them in talking to their children about heaven, Scripture, Q&A pages with answers from the Bible, and a prayer of salvation.

My daughter (11) read the kid's version and I read the adult version and skimmed the children's version.

Her review:

The kids version was easy to read, probably great for kids from age 5 to 9.  There are scriptures scattered throughout, the illustrations are gorgeous and the language is easy for a child to understand.  Definitely a book that can be used for a bedtime story or in a children's Sunday School class.  My daughter liked it and it was a very quick read for her.

Love and Blessings!
