Heaven is for Real: for Little Ones Giveaway

I love being a Tommy-Mommy
Have you heard of the book, Heaven is for Real? It took all of the top book lists by storm over the last few years. It's the true story of a four-year-old boy who had emergency surgery and journeyed to heaven and back while he was on the operating table. The book is what he told his dad he saw while he was in heaven.

I haven't read the original Heaven is for Real, but Tommy Nelson sent me Heaven is for Real for Little Ones this month as my June resource. 
As soon as it came in the mail, we all sat down to read it, and I was curious to see how they would handle a near death experience in a children's book. The board book doesn't actually touch on Colton's story at all. Instead, it is simplified description of what he saw in heaven without going into the operation/traumatic experience that he and his family went through. It is a beautiful way to introduce the concept of heaven to little ones while explaining how much Jesus really truly loves them!

Heaven is for Real for Little Ones, is a book with sweet illustrations depicting children running, playing, and exploring heaven with Jesus. I really loved how it talks about the beauty of heaven and all the wonderful things that we will get to do and experience there without any pain or tears. In fact, this little board book reminded me about how much I'm looking forward to one day being there myself!

Heaven is for Real for Little Ones retails for $7.99 and is available through Tommy Nelson and other major book retailers. If you'd like a peak inside the cover, feel free to click HERE.

  5. My 4 year old Grandson questions me about heaven because we lost my boyfriend recently & suddenly who was a Grandpa to him. I had a hard time explaining heaven to him since he took me off guard. This book sounds amazing and would give him a better understanding of what I was trying to get across to him.
