From Publishers Weekly
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. Its all very kid-friendly. Parents who bought and liked the adult version of the story will likely buy this for their, or someone elses, kids; a gift inscription page is included. Ages 48.
