Editorial Reviews

Review

'Bryant’s child-friendly watercolor artwork, with its sense of joy, is the best part of the book. Lotz’ text is singsongy and does not always scan well: “I have a little brother / he’s as cute as he can be. We do everything together / and he always looks up to me.” Still, parents looking for a Christian-centered book on heaven will like the message, which the book notes “is not imagination or fantasy. It is God’s promised word” (John 14:1–6 and Revelation 21–27 are cited). Expect the book and author to be heavily promoted to the target audience.' - Ilene Cooper, Booklist Review (Booklist Review)

'Bryant's cheerful watercolor illustrations imagine Heaven as a sort of pleasant amusement park with Jesus as the headmaster and where children ride on the backs of flying sheep and climb trees with pigs and frogs. The final pages present a conservative Christian philosophy of confession and acceptance of Jesus as one's personal savior, with the concluding pages offering a prayer for children and the relevant verses from the Book of John. Additional materials include an explanatory letter to parents and other adults, questions for adults to use with children, Bible verse references incorporated into the text and an 'RSVP to Jesus' for use by the child reader. Though the text is on the saccharine side and the heavenly interpretation is a bit far-fetched, this effort does serve as an accessible introduction to difficult concepts.' - Kirkus Review (Kirkus Review)

What a beautiful book to help share such a wonderful message with children about what heaven is and how to get there. I think this a book for every library. Especially still I think it would make a great gift a children's hospital ward.

This is a great book for youth and adults wanting to know about Heaven. If you are wanting a children's book to explain what happens when you die then this is it. I recommend!!!

I have been hoping to find a book to give my granddaughters to show them how heaven will be, and this book will make the best Christmas gift from me to them! I am looking forward to sitting down with them both to read it together, and I can imagine each of them enjoying the message and the beautiful illustrations as they go to bed each night. They are 8 years old and 6 years old. The younger will enjoy learning to read it and the older child has been very curious about this topic, telling me that heaven may not be that great "because I can't eat in heaven." With her book, Anne shows the Bible verses she used as the foundation for the book and encourages family to get involved with children and grandchildren exploring this vital subject.

This book was recommended to me at a Christian woman's seminar and was being sold at the seminar. It was crowded at the seminar and difficult to review the book. I got a good look at it on Amazon and purchased it. It is an excellent illustration of death, in the written word as well as the illustrations. I highly recommend this book for a good way to explain death to a child as well as to an adult.

Someone gave our family this book as a gift, but I can't remember who. We've read it to our children many times, already, and it really is a great book. Young kids - especially those who have experienced a death in their family, recently - tend to have questions about what happens to people when they die, and what heaven is like. This book lays that information out for them in simple terms they can understand. Though the pictures are a bit cartoony and exaggerated, the message they convey is easy for kids to grasp, and may even help explain heaven to some adults, as well.

In this crazy world of ours, there will always be people who try to make believe that heaven is just what they want it to be, and their impressions of heaven can be pretty far from the truth. If you're looking for an easy way to explain the concept of heaven and eternal life to your kids so they don't conjure up their own misconceptions, this is a great book for doing just that!

Wonderfully effective book for answering those many questions little ones have about heaven. My young children have many questions due to the passing of their grandfather. This was a great way to answer their questions and seems to have been of comfort to them. The illustrations are just great as well.
