As a family, we enjoy this book tremendously. I have completed about 20 detailed church led or commercially published bible studies on a number of books of the bible and have not found this book to be confusing or inaccurate in anyway...there is scripture on the pages of this book that show accurate written and picture content. I first listened to the quite lengthy abridged audio story of the novel at the same time I was working on a commercially published study of the book of Revelation; I did not find any details to be inaccurate, but matched the bible well and complimented my study beautifully. This children's picture book and the audio story are our kids' favorites from their library. I recommend this book. I also learned my younger son's preschool class will receive a number of days learning about heaven and this book is used in the school for a segment of the teaching on heaven. It is so important that we be in the word of God to know Him and also test life against it to discern truth and direction. People need to be aware that their doubts mean something in the supernatural world...so quit doubting, read up, pray up, and believe and receive the grace, love, and provisions of an awesome God!
Colton's experiences are presented in a manner and level appropriate to preschool and early elementary children, with simple concepts, clear artwork, and a positive, encouraging message about our Savior's love for children.
This book has some things in it that just didn't "feel right" to me. My oldest daughter noticed some of them too. Before buying Heaven Is For Real Kids I would read the adult version. But I recommend praying before that and seeing what He would have you do.
In this kids' version are profound insights about what to expect to see and do in heaven that are not found elsewhere. The adults' version provides believability. The kids' version provides comfort and certainty to adults as well as children.
