Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautifully told, wonderfully illustrated  Nov 14, 2006
What a wonderful way to help children find answers to their questions about heaven. The story unfolds as the young boy searches for answers about heaven after the death of his grandfather. As he asks his neighbors, his teachers, the postman, and the ice cream truck owner, he discovers that everyone has good thoughts about heaven. But it's his grandmother's answer--based on the Bible, that give him the most comfort.
 
Great addition to church or family libraries  Nov 1, 2006
We've all wondered it: What Is Heaven Like? Now Beverly Lewis addresses the question in this lovely, thoughtful story for children. The boy in the story tells of his loneliness for his grandpa who has recently died. He then asks friends, teachers, neighbors, and family what Heaven is like, gaining a different perspective from each. Appropriately his questions end with his grandma who misses Grandpa so much, too.

The boy tells his story, but oddly enough, we never learn his name nor his sister's, though we learn the names of his dentist, the ice cream truck driver, and his next-door neighbor. When the boy discusses his loneliness for Grandpa with Grandma, she gives him the plan of salvation.

Pamela Querin's beautiful full-color illustrations enhance this hardcover book. Each two-page spread includes a verse about Heaven or life after death. On the last page, Lewis includes some notes to parents on teaching children about Heaven.

What Is Heaven Like? would be a great addition to a church, Christian school, or family library. The reading level is appropriate for second to fourth graders though younger children would profit from having it read. - Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
 
Wonderful book!  Oct 15, 2006
Lonesome for his grandpa who has passed on, one child goes on a quest to determine what heaven is like and how he can get there.

He asks the mailman, the librarian, the ice cream truck driver, the dentist, the zoo keeper, and a neighbor. Armed with information, he seeks the opinion of those he trusts most, his family. When he is finished, he knows he'll see his grandpa again.

This touching story, gorgeously illustrated in soft, but realistic tones, paints a Biblically inspired picture of Heaven. On each page, the answer the child receives is backed up with applicable scripture. And when he speaks with his grandma about getting to Heaven, the gospel is presented in a child-friendly manner.

I love that although Heaven is painted in such a way that everyone can go there; it is also made clear that the pathway to Heaven is through Jesus. I would not hesitate for one second allowing my children to read this.

Armchair Interviews says: A gorgeous and thoughtful book on faith and Heaven.
