How Far Away is Heaven? is a story about a little boy named Zachary who goes to stay with his grandparents every day. He loves working and reading and doing all kinds of things with his grandmother and grandfather, but one day his grandfather gets sick and has to go to the hospital and he doesn't come home. Zachary learns that his grandfather has gone to be with Jesus and that he isn't sick or hurting any longer, but Zachary is still curious about how far away Heaven really is. Simply told for young children, this picture book is a good way to introduce the topic of death and heaven to children. Slightly Imperfect.
