Alcorn has been narrating his own books for some time now, for better or worse. His untrained style is never better utilized than here. In this work about the concept of heaven (an adaptation of his work HEAVEN, for adults) he keeps his manner conversational, as if talking directly to children. Kids introduce the questions, and Alcorn responds. He sounds practiced as well as comfortable with his own vocal limitations. He speaks kids' language, interjecting words like "cool" and "awesome" where he feels necessary. This adaptation is also aimed at adults looking for ways to answer their kids' questions, although preschoolers may not understand some of the deeper concepts.
