Death and the loss of loved ones is something that each of us must face in this life. When the time comes, this can be especially difficult for children who often do not have a fully developed biblical understanding of death and the life that follows. In How Do I Get to Heaven?, Nancy Gorrell strives to present a biblical view of death, with the hope that it may be a blessing for the young children that we (and Jesus) love.
Each chapter is only a few pages in length, answering questions like:
- How can I get to heaven?
- Do I have to buy salvation?
- What is justification?
As new words are introduced, children are encouraged to write them down in a notebook to answer questions and reflect on what they are learning. This is an easy way to encourage your children in their writing and will allow you to introduce them to the idea of journaling. How do I get to Heaven? would work well for parents and grandparents to read aloud to children ages 4 to 7 at meal time or bed time. Children ages 8 and older should have not problem reading this book by themselves, but parents are encouraged to engage their children in discussion on the topics covered in each chapter.
How do I Get to Heaven? is available at your local Christian book store. Here are a few of the places where you can purchase it online: ChristianBook.com, 10ofthose.com, BarnesandNoble.com or Amazon.com. Learn more about the book at ChristianFocus.com.
