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.
