People die and we tell children, "_____ is in heaven with God." Christians might even say with Jesus. And children wonder where is heaven and can they visit. Well, no, not exactly. And many kids I've asked have described heaven as a garden, a place of peace, a place where you have everything you want, and the reward for living a good life. Where do they get these ideas? We don't, any of us, know what heaven is like, not really. Nor do we know where to find it. Say, like, on a map as we would Florida.

But if you want to know what to tell kids, the next time they ask, buy the book: 'What is Heaven?" Published by Liguori Press and available on their web site.
