"What About Heaven: Little Blessings" by Kathleen Long Bostrom

ISBN: 9781414375106
Softcover $3.99

 About the little book: Kids have lots of questions; Little Blessings question books help parents answer the tough questions. What about Heaven? helps explain eternal life to kids and adults alike. The rhythmic rhyming book begins with questions kids ask about heaven and answers each one in a theologically accurate yet age-appropriate manner, including scriptures to reference. The adorable multi-cultural kids and colorful art will make this a favorite book for kids and adults. Learning about Heaven has never been so sweet and simple.

I know that God loves me.
Of this there's no doubt.
But what about heaven?
What's that all about?

My thoughts on the book:  Children are beautifully inquisitive and they do ask questions about what happens when death occurs.  As parents and adults who desire to give a Biblical response to these inquiring inquisitive youngsters, it is good to have the right answers.  And sometimes we need tools to help us do just that. 

What About Heaven? is written attractively for the very young child and will capture their attention right away with the rhyming text full of the questions for which these youngsters want answers. Illustrated in sweet, whimsical style that parents as well as children love, their attention is kept visually as well as verbally.

Now just how effective will this little gem of a book be to us as we minister to our young charges?  I think the sweetness of the book will generate a gentle response of heart and mind to the topic of Heaven.  As the questions have been posed in the early part of the book, the response or answer is given in rhyme in the last portion. Answers are Biblically based (references to Scripture are at the top of the "answer" pages) though written in age-appropriate rhyme.

All in all I think this is a treasure to be used since the Biblical truths are expressed clearly with the specific Bible references for parental and child future study.  I recommend homes with little ones acquire it for a "go to" book for those special question and answer moments.
