I Can Only Imagine (Picture Book) A Friendship with Jesus Now and Forever
By Bart Millard with Laura Neutzling; Illustrated by Sumiti Collina Published by Thomas Nelson is a new book based on the well known inspirational song writer Bart Millard's music. The picture book is filled with colorful, bold illustrations that will introduce young children to the concept of heaven in simple understandable terms. Each page spread of this picture book, assists in encouraging a child to imagine what heaven would be like. Based on everyday experiences, a child is encouraged to imagine "what if" scenarios based on pleasant experiences. While the ideas may seem simplistic and grounded based on worldly experiences, this book makes a good spring board for a discussion about heaven, death and faith. This book will appeal to families who have a basic understanding of bible concepts. I feel this book reinforces stereotypes of what heaven may be like. Nevertheless the significance of this book is that it will encourage young readers and families to explore their own views of heaven and possibly to seek out the truth based what the bible has to say about heaven. I feel this picture book will create a yearning for some readers and even their parents to learn even more about heaven. As a blogger for BookLook I recived a copy of this book for the copy of writing this review.
