Publisher's Description

"What is heaven like?"

A young boy and his sister, missing their recently departed grandfather, ponder heaven. In a quest for understanding, the boy sets off to ask everyone he encounters all about it--his teachers, the ice cream truck driver, the dentist, his family--and each person offers a different yet insightful response.

For any child who is coming to terms with the loss of a loved one, or even those young ones who are simply curious, What Is Heaven Like? poignantly addresses the questions kids ask most often. The final page offers suggestions for parents and Christian educators.

"There are many rooms in my Father's house. If this were not true, I would have told you."
John 14:2

We've all wondered it: What Is Heaven Like? Now Beverly Lewis addresses the question in this lovely, thoughtful story for children. The boy in the story tells of his loneliness for his grandpa who has recently died. He then asks friends, teachers, neighbors, and family what Heaven is like, gaining a different perspective from each. Appropriately his questions end with his grandma who misses Grandpa so much, too.
The boy tells his story, but oddly enough, we never learn his name nor his sister's, though we learn the names of his dentist, the ice cream truck driver, and his next-door neighbor. When the boy discusses his loneliness for Grandpa with Grandma, she gives him the plan of salvation.
Pamela Querin's beautiful full-color illustrations enhance this hardcover book. Each two-page spread includes a verse about Heaven or life after death. On the last page, Lewis includes some notes to parents on teaching children about Heaven.
What Is Heaven Like? would be a great addition to a church, Christian school, or family library. The reading level is appropriate for second to fourth graders though younger children would profit from having it read. – Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com

    This book is not suitable in homes where the child's parent is absent, such as incarcerated or deceased. It speaks of a cozy home where there are two parents.

    What is Heaven Like, by Beverly Lewis, tells the story of a little boy wondering what heaven is like after his grandfather passes away.

    He asks questions to various friends and family members, such as:

    Are there animals in heaven?

    Can you send a letter to heaven?

    Do you have to be quiet in heaven?

    Is there yummy food in heaven?

    Will I look like myself in heaven?

    Each page has an accompanying Bible verse taken from the New International Reader's Version of the Holy Bible.

    The boy also discovers that he can learn even more about heaven from reading the Bible. While talking to his grandmother, the boy learns how he can be assured that he will go to heaven as well.

    At the end of the book, Beverly Lewis includes a note to parents with tips on how to handle questions about heaven and death that little ones might bring up.

    Overall, I think this is was a great book. It was very easy to read and answered many questions that I'm sure are very common for young ones to ask. I love that it included so much Scripture. The only thing I wasn't I agreed with was the answer that says there are probably animals in heaven (I personally don't think there are..but that's just my opinion.) Still, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with young children who might be asking questions about heaven and what happens after death.

    Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for free from Bethany House Publishers to read and review, but I was not obligated to write a positive review.

    Very nice book! I am very impressed with it and I noticed that I got it for a little over half the price it was at the bookstore.
