|Questions about heaven from a child's perspective... Oct 28, 2009|
|I used this book along with two others to help my 6 year old daughter understand her Gramp's death. While it reinforced all we have taught her, it helped having a book that delivered a gentle message about what heaven is like. Like the author's other books, the illustrations are wonderful and the message simple. Highly recommended! |
|Love it! May 9, 2009|
|I have all the books but one is this series and I love them all. They tell great messages in a way kids can understand.|
|Introduction to Heaven & Life after Earth Feb 8, 2009|
|This is a very sweet way to introduce kids to the concepts of life after death, and will simply answer some questions about what heaven is like. It's perfect for little ones (especially those who may have lost someone recently). Very touching and sweet!|
|Gorgeous artwork, heartwarming story Sep 27, 2008|
|"Papa, what's heav'n?" Little Cub queries her father as her family rises in the morning, the opening of the story. Readers follow the polar bear family through their daily tasks and are privy to the explanations Papa bear provides and the conversation that develops as more questions occur to Little Cub. While answering Little Cub's questions Papa bear answers many of the queries similar to those your own little cubs may ask.|
"When do we get to see heaven?"
"Will we eat in heaven?"
"Will we be angels?"
Some of the questions do not have clear biblical answers; not much is known about heaven when we examine the scriptures. Papa bear is never evasive, but speaks in terms that small children can understand. He tells Little Cub of heaven's goodness, how it is filled with love and everything that we long for, most especially God.
And the most important question:
"How do we get there, Papa? To heaven, I mean."
This launches Papa bear into a simple explanation of Jesus as the bridge to heaven, a mild children's gospel that simply points to Jesus as the Way. However, the theology offered is somewhat soft, with Papa bear positing that all of their loved ones will be in heaven - a statement made before he shares about Jesus. Parents may want to clarify that this is the case only if all of these loved ones are believers.
Bryant's illustrations are delightful, they are among my favourites in children's literature. The bear family is adorable in their wintry home, the snow reflecting all the shades of the sky and sun. The soft, powdery pastel shades are enticing, rendering the bears huggable and the landscapes somewhat ethereal. Never before has the Arctic been depicted so appealingly
Dedicated to a little girl who went home to the Lord at the age of six, God Gave Us Heaven provides a gentle way to speak to children about death. Whether preparing for the passing of a loved one, after the death of a child or simply to meet a child's curiosity; this book clearly expresses God's love and the riches of heaven, revealing that believers can look forward to a loving home as their final destination.
