Spun off from the adult bestseller Heaven Is for Real, this pint-sized version details what three-year-old Colton experienced while being briefly dead. Heaven is apparently filled with all the wonderful things the Bible promises and more, the main point being that "Jesus really, really loves children!" The literalness of Colton's Heaven (wings, puppies, three distinct Gods) is echoed in awkwardly figured illustrations.

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 2011 September #3)

The bestselling book is adapted for children, which makes sense since the story involves a child, Colton Burpo, who told his parents he visited heaven during a life-threatening surgery when he was three. Heaven is filled with angels and also animals; Colton reported playing with dogs, cats, elephants, and kangaroos, and saw Jesus riding a big white horse, to which illustrator Ong gives a rainbow mane. It's all very kid-friendly. Parents who bought and liked the adult version of the story will likely buy this for their, or someone else's, kids; a gift inscription page is included. Ages 4–8. (Nov. 8)
