Published by Simon & Schuster, I Don't See Heaven tells the story of Isabella, a young girl who goes on her very first plane ride with her parents to visit with her grandmother. While on the plane, Isabella learns that she may not be able to physically visit her grandfather in Heaven, but is reassured that he is always with her, in her thoughts and in her heart. I Don't See Heaven is the story of a little girl's journey to the truth as she learns an important life lesson about how to keep love alive after a death.
I read I Don't See Heaven at bedtime to my 4 year old grandson and 6 year old granddaughter when they spent the night.
They both enjoyed the story and they really enjoyed the illustrations that go with the story.
The illustrations really make the story come more to life.
I took the book to our Tuesday morning Bible study and had the others read it too. They all agreed that this is a cute book. The story is short and pretty much to the point.
Even though Isabella couldn't see heaven, and couldn't see her grandpa in heaven, she learns that she can still see him in her heart and remember the good times.
The book is illustrated by E.A. Morando who studued music and is currently a middle school music teacher.
Once my daughter pointed out that a music teacher did the drawings in the book, we all started seeing things differently in the illustrations. Music notes strewn about and books with titles of instruments.
Funny how different things stand out to different people.
I want to share a photo that I took of one of the illustrations:
I Don't See Heaven is an enjoyable book with a life lesson for all. Read it, and read it again and again. Cute book!
