I think about heaven as I look up at the sky
And watch the fluffy clouds roll by.
The more I imagine, the more I wish I knew.
I wonder, would God like pancakes with extra syrup too?
And if God and I spent the day together, what exactly would we do?
The Christian worship song "I Can Only Imagine" touched countless lives with its glorious representation of being in the presence of God, and this beautifully illustrated picture book invites you and your children to imagine those same wonders. Share the joy of a personal relationship with the Lord with your family today through the creative, faith-filled book I Can Only Imagine.

I Can Only Imagine by Bard Millard (children's edition) is a wonderful retelling of the song of the same title. This book goes through the song sometimes with different words for children. The story line lets the imagination of a child explore what they think heaven would be like. Where would they live? Would it be in a big house with big rooms? Where would they play? What would they play like and would there be playground equipment? Would they have chores at their house? What would food be like in Heaven? Would they have pets in heaven? What about music in heaven? Would they sing? And would God sing along? What would it be like to be able to talk to God and ask questions? What would it be like to live right along side of God? What is God like?
This book doesn't really answer the questions just allows the child to think about what they think that heaven would be like. Their questions are not so different than what a grown person would ask are they not? What would Heaven be like? What would we all like to ask God? When we get to heaven there is so much to ask and all eternity to ask it in. This book has beautiful pictures for the nonreader to enjoy as well as the delightful story to read. Get this book and give it to any child for birthday or even for baby showers. What a wonderful book for any child to listen to an adult to read them.
I received this book from BookLook for this review.

A Friendship with Jesus Now and Forever
By Bart Millard with Laura Neutzling
Illustrated by Sumiti Collina
What is Heaven like? What does God do? Have you ever wondered this? With natural curiosity, most have at one time or another wondered about that which cannot be seen. I Can Only Imagine is just such a wondering.
I Can Only Imagine has a wonderful flowing rhythm that paired with the illustrations offers the reader a soothing and peaceful story that allows the message of the book to be absorbed more fully.
When reading this book I was reminded of the passage from John 14, specifically verse 3, "I go to prepare a place for you..." And this wondering and imagining of just what this place in Heaven is like is expressed here. This book is the perfect read for bedtime or just a snuggle time together in a favorite chair.
There are 21 pages of text with a few additional pages that are just illustrations so it is a good length for shorter attention spans and yet not too short. The illustrations are colorful and cover an array of settings both indoors and out, day and night. I Can Only Imagine is one book you will want to share with all the young readers in your life opening up their minds to their own imaginings.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book through BookLook Bloggers with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Who didn't fall in love immediately with Mercy Me's hit "I Can Only Imagine"? The story behind the moving song has just been released as a motion picture and now the book can easily bring the theme to a child's level as the main character wonders what heaven is like. In rhyming verse, the boy wonders if you wake up with messy hair, what there is to eat, what you might spend your day doing, what the rooms look like, what is fun, if Jesus would play too, if there are animals, and more--all questions we have each wondered about at one time or another.
The brightly colored illustrations will capture the attention and imagination of small children. The text is an open invitation to begin talking to your child about heaven but I love that the text ends with an assurance that we don't have to wait to get to heaven to spend time with God. He is in our hearts. His Spirit will guide us. He will never leave us.
I thought this book a nice compliment to the song I have come to love and I believe it to be most suitable for children ages 4 to 9. I did receive this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and am in no way obligated to write a positive one.

I Can Only Imagine is such a popular song, and I have heard it a million times since it first came out. I was excited to read and review this children's book based on the song and the concept shared in it.
The book, I Can Only Imagine, shares the imaginings of a child as they think about Heaven and all that it might be.
The pictures in this book are colorful and fun to study. They are a bit realistic and I think that children will enjoy looking at them.
Who This Book is For:
This would be a good gift for children of those who love MercyMe. This could be given to anyone from babies to about age six or seven.

This pictures are fun.
The story simply questions what Heaven might be, it doesn't make up things about it.
The text is fun to read.

Karen RWAGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A delightful children's book with an uplifting message!February 19, 2018Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A delightful children's book with a wonderful message! Starting with the first part of the song by the same name, the rhyming text takes a look at what heaven may be like through a child's eyes. Imaginative and creative, this would be a perfect way to talk to a child in their terms about the hereafter, taking away some of the fear of the unknown. Assuring them also that we can have a relationship with God in the here and now also.
The colorful pictures match what a child may enjoy doing, such as eating ice cream, playing outside, singing together by a campfire. I love the idea of God singing over us and with us. "I wonder the name of God's favorite song?"
This would be a good gift or addition to anyone's library for children, or in a Sunday School. Recommend!
