From the Inside Flap

When a charming polar bear cub climbs into bed one night, she asks her Mama a very important question--one that little "human cubs" often wonder about, too: "Where did I come from?"

As Mama bear tucks her youngest cub under the quilts, she gently, tenderly, and reassuringly communicates the message loving parents everywhere (bears and non-bears alike) want their little ones to hear: "We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because--"God gave us you."

Perfect for bedtime, naptime, storytime or anytime, God Gave Us You provides a valuable opportunity to build children's self-esteem every day and assure each one that he or she truly is a welcomed, precious, and treasured gift from the Lord.

My Review

I am a huge fan of Lisa Tawn Bergren's stories, especially this one that conveys an all time message of loving, being loved and knowing that you are loved. The main characters, Mama Polar Bear and her Little Cub share a warm relationship with tender dialog that begins with a question and from their touches upon  a loving message that children are a gift from the Lord. 

I recommend God Gave Us You (board book) for gift-giving and an addition to your library for bedtime story sharing, plus Sunday Schools, Day Care for babies and toddlers and Christian families. Knowing God's love is a wonderful foundation to grow upon. I LOVED the book! *****


Thanks LibraryThing for sending God Gave Us You for review.
