Heaven is for Real for kids by Colton Burpo

If you need a picture book to help you talk to your kids about heaven, this is it. Heaven is for Real for kids is a children's picture book based on New York Times bestseller Heaven is for Real. It contains Colton Burpo's perspective of his trip to heaven and back.
This book contained a beautiful picture of what heaven looks like, what we may do there and about the King himself. The illustrations are beautiful and peaceful and each page includes a correlating bible verse.
My children really enjoyed reading this book, and my son commented "that makes me want to go there". What a great tool to introduce heaven to small children and alleviate any fears about heaven.
* This book was given to me by Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.

ESP Character Training by Kim Doebler

Every parent wants to raise a child with character. As a christian parent Godly character should be right up there on the top of our list for our children. ESP Character Training is a hands on resource to teach our children 9 main character traits. Using an explain, show and practice method this book gives you practical and easy methods and activities to teach each character. Each character chapter includes verses and ideas to teach these all important characters.
I absolutely loved this book. A book that actually gives you literal activities to teach these character traits; imagine that. There are numerous ideas throughout this book and they could easily be adapted to any age group. You don't have to be a parent to use this resource; this book would be idea for teachers, grandparents, Sunday school workers or any person working with children.
I only wish I would have had access to this resource years ago. We have already started using the ideas in the book to teach the first character. I think I might be learning something too, but don't tell my kids that.
My only question is, when is another book coming out to help me teach more Godly characters to my children?
