Read this Book! Heaven is for Real
Colton sees himself floating above the operating table during an emergency surgery and views his dad praying for him in the waiting room. His family didn't know what to think about his story but as he continues to describe of his near-death experience, they believe that the impossible is possible--their little boy really visited heaven! He told about meeting his miscarried sister, of whom he had no knowledge of before the incident. He describes his great-grandfather who died long before he was born, the amazing horse Jesus rides and the really big chair God has.
I would normally never 'review' a book I haven't read myself, but I think if it is good enough to keep my "I hate to read" husband engrossed even in the checkout line at Wal-Mart, it's gotta be a pretty good book! I even had to cook supper by myself cause he had his nose stuck in a book!
I guess the secret to raising a reader (at any age!) might be to get the cool format.
Oh--and find the right book of course!
