Heaven Is for Real for Kids

As told by Colton Burpo to his parents, Todd and Sonja Burpo, illus. by Wilson Ong. Tommy Nelson, $14.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4003-1870-4
The bestselling book is adapted for children, which makes sense since the story involves a child, Colton Burpo, who told his parents he visited heaven during a life-threatening surgery when he was three. Heaven is filled with angels and also animals; Colton reported playing with dogs, cats, elephants, and kangaroos, and saw Jesus riding a big white horse, to which illustrator Ong gives a rainbow mane. It’s all very kid-friendly. Parents who bought and liked the adult version of the story will likely buy this for their, or someone else’s, kids; a gift inscription page is included. Ages 4–8.
