I LOVE this book!!!!!!!!!! It is so amazing what Colten sees! I really hope even non-christians read this book and hopefully even become a Christian themselves! God can do AMAZING things! =)
We'll never know if Colten's story is true or not, but one thing's for sure...
Heaven is DEFINITELY for real!!!

OMG I love love love LOVE this book. It is sad at times but overall it is a SUPER good book. I suggest you read the book then see the movie. :)

Currently 2/3 through the book and already I have been brought to tears a few times thanks to the 'childlike innocence' Todd talks about regarding Colton. As a Catholic who sometimes puts faith last, this is a great reminder that heaven is real and our faith can be renewed whenever we choose to. Praise God!

I can't wait to read this! :D

This is a really good book. I love this book. I have seen the movie. It's better than the movie big time. It's a sad story though but a good book to read and it has a happy ending at least.

This a very good book.
I feel like I am somehow connected to Heaven after reading this.
This story inspires, and I highly recommend that anyone who has any questions about Heaven, or God, or has doubts about Jesus' love, should read this.
FIVE STARS!

A good book although i truly believe the child visited heaven there are a few parts of the book that i think are embelished it is great that people loved it and the movie did well it gets people talking about Jesus and God

This book is incredible! Every question I have ever had about heaven was answered. Questions like- Are there dogs in heaven? What do we look like in heaven?

This is a mind blowing book.

As you read you get a glimpse at what is truly Heaven, what is truly Paradise.
The journey that this little boy takes, will have you hanging on to his every word, his every breath, as you hunger for more.
The simple way he puts things, makes it possible for everyone to see what is beyond the drab world that we live in today.
It gives hope to all who are hopeless.
Faith to all who lack faith.
It is simply a real-life experience put into words that will teach you about what God is like, and how much he really loves us.
