Heaven is for Real

Cara's 6th Grade class is reading the book Heaven is for Real in reading class right now.  The class doesn't use a regular textbook for reading class instead the teacher picks books and the class reads so many chapters per day.  This school year I have been reading the books with Cara.  I do this for two reasons. One - I love to read books. Two - I read the book so that when Cara has a question about the book I already know the answer.

If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it to anyone - old or young.  This book is an easy read.  The book is not very long and the chapters are short.  It is a great story about a little boy named Colton who goes to Heaven for a few minutes.  This is a true story about a little boy from Imperial, Nebraska.  Colton tells his family about Heaven bits and pieces at a time.

I have believed in Heaven and God for a long time, but the insight this little boy gives about Heaven just reinforced some of my beliefs.  Truly an amazing book to read.

Take care,
