Tell Me About Heaven Aug 30, 2008
This is an excellent book for children ages 8 to 12 to learn about the Christian God and their faith. Would highly recommend the content and art work which is just as much quality as the verse.
Tell Me About Heaven Aug 17, 2008
Not long ago I read Randy Alcorn's book Heaven. It is truly wonderful, so when I saw that he had a book written to young children on the subject I thought it would be a good book to add to my library. Our daughter's in-laws are in poor health and Tell Me About Heaven is just right for her 8 year old son to understand the concept of Heaven. I definitely would recommend this book.
Tell Me About Heaven Aug 7, 2008
This is a well written and illustrated book with which to help a young child understand Heaven as well as the death of a loved one.
wonderful book Aug 25, 2007
This is a wonderful book for children, and adults will enjoy it and learn from it also. I've already bought seven copies for friends with children and grandchildren. I can't praise it highly enough. It would also be good for adults for whom English is a second language.
Great Book to help parents teach their kids about Heaven! Jul 18, 2007
Tell Me About Heaven is a wonderful book that both my kids and I really enjoyed. It not only is a great family story that my kids enjoyed at bedtime but it also has them pondering the possibilities of what Heaven might be like. What I like most for myself as the parent is how it brings in the truth of the scriptures to help explain things. I feel much more confident in carrying on a conversation with my kids about heaven since reading this book.
