SK1 Stars Out Of 5Piggy in HeavenSeptember 14, 2021SKI was incredibly disappointed that this was even sold by a Christian book store. It literally has nothing to do with a Biblical heaven. Nothing about seeing God or Jesus. Nothing scriptural. A very secular view that heaven is a happy place where it's warm and lovely. BTW, the piggy is a guinea pig.
Carolyneas5 Stars Out Of 5A Quiet JoyJanuary 18, 2019CarolyneasQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heaven and death are confusing topics for children. My twin 5 year olds know that we had a cat that died before they were born. They see pictures which inevitably leads to questions about death. "Oh," I thought, "I have the answers. I'm an Elementary School and Sunday School teacher." Boy, was I wrong. To little ears my answers about heaven were too abstract and foreign. Then I showed them Piggy in Heaven.
Piggy in Heaven is a heartwarming tale that helps to broach the subject of death. The story of a guinea pig, Piggy, waking up in the sweet grasses of heaven is a comforting setting for children. He is welcomed by other piggies who share what life is like in heaven. They are joy-filled critters who soon become good friends. When Piggy asks some harder questions, they answer simply and give him comfort. Piggy is able to experience the delights of heaven because he knows that he is being watched over. He scampers about, rolls around in the grass, and munches away to his heart's content all because he is in heaven.
There is a quiet joy about this story. As I thumbed through, I knew this story could express ideas my five year olds would understand. They have not experienced the loss of someone close, but they are willing to talk about heaven. This story has eased a few fears and given a visual of heaven to my children. Piggy in Heaven is a perfect match for preschoolers through 1st grade. And let me tell you, the cuteness factor of these little guinea pigs has filled our hearts.
