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.
This is a sweet book about how God gave the parent’s their child, and the illustrations are just as sweet as the message. I thought the book was nice, but a little too redundant/repetitive for my taste.
