What Will Heaven Be Like? A Story of Hope and Comfort for Kids by Kathleen Ruckman


What Will Heaven Be Like? A Story of Hope and Comfort for Kids by Kathleen Ruckman

Children's author and mom of four Kathleen Ruckman teams up with creative illustrator Greg Hardin, formerly of Big Idea, Inc., to tell a story that children will love and parents, grandparents, and caregivers will appreciate. Annie and her brother, Adam, love their Sunday visits to Grandpa's farm. The three often go for walks so Annie can pick great fistfuls of beautiful wildflowers and Adam can catch wiggly, slippery frogs. As much fun as it is to wander through the farmland, Annie and Adam always look forward to hearing what Grandpa has to say about...well, today it's what he has to say about heaven. When the children ask Grandpa such simple questions as, What will heaven be like? and Who will be in heaven? Grandpa takes the opportunity to share biblical truths about God's love and His kingdom.
