This book combines 4 Little Blessings volumes (What is God Like? What Is Prayer? What About Heaven? Are Angels Real?), all of which use whimsical rhyming text to answer questions about God, heaven, angels, and prayer. Little Blessings “questions” books are known for their heartwarming text and delightful multicultural characters. Each question is answered using Scripture, fun poetry, and the adorable characters. The questions include: What is God Like? What Is Prayer? What About Heaven? Are Angels Real? The answers are theologically sound and thorough, yet child-friendly. Bible references follow each section.

Questions from Little Hearts is the kind of book I wish I had when the kids were smaller. The pictures are beautiful, the rhyming text is delightful, and the questions are just the sort that toddlers and young children are constantly asking.

There are four sections to this book, each one answering important questions about the nature of God, Heaven, prayer, and angels. The questions are asked, then answered, in rhyming text. At the end of each section, the questions are answered again, this time with Scripture verses explaining where the answers are found in the Bible.

Here’s a sample from the section on Heaven:

I know God loves me.
Of this there’s no doubt.
But what about heaven?
What’s that all about?….

(snip)

All questions have answers,
but some you won’t learn
Till God says it’s time
for his Son to return.
Your questions are good ones,
so let’s dive right in
And see what the Bible says.
Ready? Begin!

Though heaven’s a place
that you can’t see from here,
It says in the Bible
that heaven is near.

You don’t need to know
how to fly or to swim.
The way is with Jesus,
believing in Him.

The author then goes on to expound on what we do know about heaven, all told in language that small children will readily understand.This is a perfect book to read with your young ones, and should lead to some great discussions.

    I’m always looking for good Biblical books for my toddler. I don’t want to launch into “official” Bible Study until he’s older…but I still want to have something to supplement his children’s Bibles and whatnot.

    I love giving my daughter books about God that aren’t too coersive or preachy. My mom is Catholic, and my Dad is a Pentocostal preacher so between the 2 churches and Catholic school , I have quite enough cultish,propaganda-esque books. I still love prayer books, the Bible and stories about Jesus,though. This sounds like a sweet book for my child!
