Book Review: Questions from Little Hearts

D on’t you love the innocence of little children, when they ask about God - many times simple yet still, so deep? With just celebrating the brief life our little Angela Hope, one of our younger girls asked if she is a “real angel” in heaven.

Questions from Little HeartsQuestions from Little Hearts by Kathleen Long Bostrom, is such a delightful book with whimsical rhyming prose to quickly capture and keep children’s attention. After giving in to “read it again, mama” my little ones knew what some of the rhyming words would be, “reading” along with me in unison. And our question on angels was even answered!

Are there many angels,
or only a few?
When I go to heaven,
can I be one too?

Just how many are there?
What is the amount?
Thousand and millions -
too many to count!
~ ~ ~
Now, maybe you think
it would be lots of fun
To be a real angel
when this life is done.

We won’t become angels,
but that is OK.
We’ll all be together
in heaven someday.

Questions from Little Hearts is a combination of the author’s four Little Blessing books into one. Those four little books ask the following questions:

* “What is God like?”
* “What is prayer?”
* “Are angels real?”
* “What about heaven?”

This book is perfect for young little ones. A few pages may be just enough for a quiet time before bed, or a whole chapter book. Perhaps it would be perfect to keep at grandma’s house for special reading time. This hardcovered book is 288 pages, measures 5 3/4 x 7 1/4, making it a nice size for little ones to take to church to keep them quiet as they look through the wonderful illustrations. These illustrations, by Elana Kucharik, (the one who created the Care Bear characters) are of adorable little multicultural characters.
