Little Cub awakens one morning with some important questions on her mind: What is heaven like? How do we get there? Will we eat in heaven? Will we be angels?

During a delightful day spent wandering their arctic world, Papa gently answers each question, assuring Little Cub that heaven is a wonderful place, “a million times better” than she can imagine. He explains how God has made a way for those who love him to enter their heavenly home forever after their lives on earth are over.

Reuniting the best-selling author-illustrator team from God Gave Us You, this gentle story provides satisfying answers for a young child’s most difficult questions about heaven. Parents, grandparents, childcare professionals, librarians, Sunday school teachers, and others will appreciate the gentle approach to a topic that’s on the minds of so many “little cubs.”

Through captivating, full-color illustrations and tender, biblically sound storytelling, young readers and those who love them will find reasons to rejoice in knowing that God Gave Us Heaven.


"God Gave Us Heaven" is the perfect story to tell children about heaven and everything in between. It uses simple terms and cute, cuddly characters in full-color illustrated presentation, that children can easily identify with. It's a storybook that not only educates children about the place called "heaven" but also prepares them in mind and at heart. It reassures them that there's a special place for children where only love, peace and overwhelming joy abound.

This book is great when first introducing the Bible to a kid; or if trying to comfort a sick child or a child with disability; or a child who just lost someone or something dear. Also great as a bedtime story or a Sunday Church Children's ministry story. Highly recommended as a gift for children and families with kids ages 3-8!
