So the title to this is pretty awful in my opinion. I read it and I was like.. heaven is having you.... like... the kid/ cub is dying?

But no, it's just another one of those "how do I love thee" type of books for kids. Here's how awesome you are, child, and how much I love you and how that will never change.

It's a cute book and a nice one to add to the stack of "I love you a lot" books.

If you're wondering about religious overtones, it's just about how really wonderful, beautiful things are heaven

It is hard for little ones to understand the concept of heaven and I believe this book does a really good job at trying to get littles to begin thinking about what heaven could be.

To this little Bear's Grandmother, heaven is -

seeing Grandpa's face while he is swinging his Grandson...
watching Baby Bear playing with his friends...
Looking for monsters in dens...
Building castles in the sand...

A very sweet book!

This book is super cute but doesn't have very much plot to it which I understand is why it is a kids book and not a teen/young adult book. However I would recommend it for younger kids to use to learn how to read and for kids who can't open their eyes yet. The pictures in this book are sweet and cute. Make sure to look at the pictures or you might not see the full beauty within this book. Enjoy!!

What a cute book. "It's heaven to see you." Grandma bear says. "What is heaven?" Asks little bear. Heaven is many things replies grandma bear. This cute book describes what heaven is for grandma bear. Mainly it's having little bear in her life.

This book would be better if it were "Happiness is having you..." instead of "Heaven is having you."

This book is not a good choice if you are looking for a book to explain to children what heaven is like.

Sweet book, cute illustrations.

Agreed that it would be better if they used "happiness" over "heaven" (personal religious preference) but the illustration is nice.
