"A Place Called Heaven for Kids: 10 Exciting Things About Our Forever Home" is from Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas.

It follows an adult version of "A Place Called Heaven" that was released in 2017.

Jeffress told American Family Radio the idea came from his publishers to expand the topic of Heaven to a book that can reach children.

“That resonated with me,” he said, “because as a pastor as well a parent and grandparent now, I see children have lots of questions about death and Heaven."

Young people are introduced to death all the time, he told the “Today’s Issues” program, such as through the passing of a grandparent or, more tragically, a mass shooting.  

"It sparks questions and fears,” he said. “So we have written this children's book where I answer 10 most frequently asked questions about Heaven.”

Of the 10 questions in the book, he went on to say, the most important is the final one: How do I get to Heaven?

“And there's a plan of salvation and a prayer that the parent or grandparent can lead a child in to trust in Christ as Savior,” he said.

The pastor also passed on a sobering story to the radio program: grandparents have told Jeffress they appreciate the book because it allows them to reach their grandchildren who are not being taken to church.
