I think this book is great. What an awesome way to get kids excited about Heaven and living for Jesus. The book has Scriptures all the way through. It also talks about the whole wing issue, leaving it open for discussion. I don't think thats a reason not to buy this.

I bought Heaven Is For Real Kids because it had great reviews from well known Christian entities as well as because people I know said it was a great book. I sat down and began reading it to my children, and there were some things that just didn't "feel right" to me. One of them my oldest daughter noticed also and said "Mom, why do all the people have wings? I don't remember hearing about that in the Bible". Our church does a really good job at teaching our children to not only read the word of God, but to understand it as well. A few days later I read the adult version of the book, and there were many other things that just didn't seem "right". While the books for kids are cute and reassurring, that doesn't mean they are speaking truth. There are things in the books that do not seem to line up with scripture. I felt led to talk to my children about why this book bothered me and we had a long talk about it. If you feel compelled to buy this curriculum for your church, read it first and pray and ask for discernment. My recommendation is to ask God if He would have you share this with your child/children BEFORE buying. Pray over it, and then pray again. I believe that the Bible is 100% true, and the Heaven Is For Real books just gave me that "this isn't right" feeling. I do not believe they should be used in a Sunday school class or Church class of any kind. Stick to the Bible, where we know the stories are fact.
