Our librarians have been busy reading and writing new reviews for you to enjoy!

Let’s Talk About Heaven

by Debby Anderson

What does heaven look like? Will we live in houses? What will we eat? Will my dog be there? Most of us have heard questions like these from the mouths of trusting children trying to grasp the wonders of God’s promise of a heavenly home for believers. This book brings together the sweet innocence of a child’s questions and simplified version of biblical information about heaven. The result is a charming book that parents and teachers can use again and again to help young children understand more clearly the wonderful forever home he has planned for His own.
