Summary: A little boy's grandpa died and he has a lot of questions about Heaven. He asks everyone he runs into one day what they think Heaven will be like. Everyone explains to him that Heaven will be amazing. Each person has something different they assure him will be perfect in Heaven: food, flowers, playgrounds, animals, our health, and everything else. He talks to his grandma and they talk about missing grandpa and how great Heaven will be!

Personal Reaction: Awesome book for children dealing with death and having questions about Heaven. Very beautiful pictures. This book helped my children when we had lost my great grandmother.

Classroom Extensions:

1.) Paint a picture of what we think Heaven will be like.

2.) Talk about things that might help to deal with the death of a loved one. ( )

This book is a good book to read to children because most children are very confused about death and heaven. This book can maybe help with some of their questions and worries.

I enjoyed the book. I don't think it could be used in the traditional classroom. In a Sunday School class or at home it could be used to help children understand about death and ease their fears after someone close to them passes away. ( )

Comforting examination of Christian beliefs about dieing, written for children. Illustrations are soft and soothing. Young boy loses his grandfather, and asks a number of grownups what heaven is like, where it is, and so on. The grownups have differing ideas (in the details) but all answers are supported by scripture quote at the bottom of the page. ( )

"What is heaven like?"

A young boy and his sister, missing their recently departed grandfather, ponder heaven. In a quest for understanding, the boy sets off to ask everyone he encounters all about it--his teachers, the ice cream truck driver, the dentist, his family--and each person offers a different yet insightful response.

For any child who is coming to terms with the loss of a loved one, or even those young ones who are simply curious, What Is Heaven Like? poignantly addresses the questions kids ask most often. The final page offers suggestions for parents and Christian educators.

"There are many rooms in my Father's house. If this were not true, I would have told you."
John 14:2
