I have read the adult version of Heaven is For Real and liked it. I then received the kids version from Booksneeze in return for a review. The book is a very condensed version of the nonfiction version. It is written in very simple terms that kids can understand. It also contains a series of questions that children may ask about the book and Colton Burpo.
Overall I thought that the book was really good. I is a book that should be read to younger kids. An older kid would think that it is too elementary. I would like to see a version for kids 7-12 to see how Heaven would be address. The illustrations were really well done. It has lots of children (most with wings) and vivid colors. It does use a large amount of the color yellow. The illustrations and story would be loved by children younger than 5. I will be passing this one along to another child. Nicely done.
