About this Book

Encourage your children’s sense of wonder and faith with I Can Only Imagine, inspired by the hit song by MercyMe. This beautiful picture book will capture your family’s childlike faith and imagination. 

I Can Only Imagine asks questions a child might ask and invites families to wonder together: What is heaven like? What does God do? What would it be like to spend a day with Jesus? Children will see that although experiencing the glory of heaven may be far off, we can enjoy a friendship with Jesus every day - right here on earth. Whimsical, playful illustrations and thought-provoking questions make this a book that families will cherish.

Fun and vibrant illustrations offer a vivid visual and will help your children see that God can be found everywhere, every day. 
I think about heaven as I look up at the sky
And watch the fluffy clouds roll by.
The more I imagine, the more I wish I knew.
I wonder, would God like pancakes with extra syrup too?
And if God and I spent the day together, what exactly would we do?

The Christian worship song “I Can Only Imagine” touched countless lives with its glorious representation of being in the presence of God, and this beautifully illustrated picture book invites you and your children to imagine those same wonders. Share the joy of a personal relationship with the Lord with your family today through the creative, faith-filled book I Can Only Imagine.

The Christian worship song I Can Only Imagine has touched countless lives as it invites listeners to ponder what it will be like when we get to Heaven and are in the presence of Christ. Will we dance in His presence? Will we be able to speak at all?

The new children's book, I Can Only Imagine begins with the famous lines of the song. The story then takes on a rhyming pattern as readers explore the song from the perspective of a child.

I loved the colorful and inviting illustrations. I enjoyed the way they brought the story to life and immersed me in the thoughts of the child in the book.

I enjoyed this book and the way it took a song I grew up listening to and took it from the perspective of a child, in a book for them. I think this is a great book for children, but also for adults as it gave me a different perspective on a song I have listened to for years.
