What About Heaven

"What About Heaven?" by Kathleen Long Bostrom is a book in the "Little Blessings" series that offer children answers about Heaven - what Heaven is, who goes to Heaven, and what it is like in Heaven. The book is written in a sing song tone, with a cute rhyming pattern, which helps children remember some of the things they hear. The actual explanations about Heaven are Bible based, and each page gives the Scripture where the basis for that part of the story can be found. 

The book is easy for young children to understand, and Bostrom made the clear choice to use kid-friendly words, which makes this book appropriate for ages 3 and up. Another thing that I thought was important was that this book is very uplifting and cheerful - it makes Heaven feel like an exciting and fun place to go.

The book is illustrated by Elena Kucharik, and done wonderfully. The depictions of Heaven, and Angels are bright, colorful, and perfect for young children.

I thought this book was great for young children, especially if the loss of a loved one or loss of a pet has your child questioning what happens after they are gone.
