This book is the newest in the Heaven Is For Real lineup. Heaven Is For Real is the #1 best selling trade book and children’s picture book and our family absolutely loves both. You can find my review of the children’s book here and the trade book here. But today, we get to talk about the little ones.
One of my favorite aspects of this sweet little book is the emphasis that Jesus really, really loves them. I remember feeling the impression of this emphasis in the children’s book also.
My two year old, Tessa, understands much more than she is able to communicate back to us. Her intuition with her older sister, Taylor, is such a thing of beauty. Although Taylor can’t speak due to her disease of MPS, Tessa seems to understand all Taylor’s needs. Each morning after I dress her, she runs to Taylor’s room to “check” on her. When Taylor is sitting in her feeding chair, Tessa wants to give her a cup to drink from. Tessa pats Taylor’s mouth when she drools, gets her bib, gets her shoes when we are going places and all kinds of little “jobs” to help with Taylor’s care.
Mostly, she simply loves Taylor and accepts her for who she is, an older sister who needs loving care. I am doubly blessed to see their love for each other and you can imagine what it does for this Mama’s heart when I read the words to them from Heaven is for Real for little ones:
No one ever gets sick or hurt in heaven. No bumps, bruises, or skinned knees, no wheelchairs or crutches. People don’t get old; everyone is young and healthy. In heaven, you get to live forever with God!
Oh mercy. Enough said. *tears*
