This book has beautiful illustrations and gives a child's eye view of Heaven. ( )

Well, this story, or book or however you want to refer to it as, had me hooked in the beginning. However, admittetdly, I was very skeptical, and I still am.

There are some points that I really have to question if it is truth or fiction. I would read a chapter and question the validity of it afterwards.

Chilling that some things were mentioned by the boy that he hadn't heard of before or was told by anyone. So those things have me wondering, could it be true?

So, not sure where I really stand on this book, by all means if it is factual, Awesome, but then, sadly a part of me in the back of my mind says, what if years from now it comes out that it wasn't all as written. Must be the skeptic in me! ( )

Colton Burpo came back from his trip to heaven with a very improtant message...Jesus really, really loves children.
Colton shares his experience with children so they, too, can have the comfort, joy, and wonder of knowing that heavenis for real and that Jesus really, really loves them!

This book brought me to tears as I realized anew our heavenly Father's great love for His children. ( )
