Treasures from Heaven

Do you ever wonder what Heaven will be like? In Treasures from Heaven, written by Leslie Jackson, young Christa and her mother have lots of ideas about it. Perhaps Heaven is like cotton candy or coffee. Perhaps Heaven is like a rainbow or a laugh. As the two drive along the road, they offer their thoughts in a lighthearted way.

Each two-page spread in the book has two to five lines of text on one side and simple, bright, kid-friendly illustrations on the other.

What I Like: The eye-catching illustrations are adorable and the banter between mother and child is enjoyable. To me, the best line is, “…most importantly, it [Heaven] will be filled with God’s love, and I can’t wait to get there.”

What I Dislike: While imagining what Heaven is like, Mom suggests Christa think of her favorite things. For some reason, that bothers me. Would, then, Heaven be different for everyone according to their personal preferences? Also, I would have liked some Heavenly Scripture references.

Overall Rating: Good

Age Appeal: The publisher lists ages 4-8, but to me it seems too "young" for that. I believe it's better suited for ages 2-5.
