A Very Special Story

I received this book today and I read it to my children right away. Author, Lisa Tawn Bergren, did a great job with this book too! God Gave Us You starts off with a polar bear cub being tucked in for the night. She wasn't sleepy yet so the questions started. "Where did I come from?" My children have asked me that question before, and my answer has always been, Jesus gave you to Mommy and Daddy so we can take care of you and teach you to love Jesus. So, when you grow up and have your own kids you can teach them to love Jesus.  Though Mama Bear tells her she came from God, Little Cub continues with the questions.
She tells the story of her pregnancy. The usual stuff, baby in the belly, it grows big because baby grows big, and then the baby's ready to come out. This story emphasizes to the child that you are with your mama and daddy because God put you there. My 3 yr old wanted to read it herself after I read it to them. She was able to retell the story by picture identification. On the page with the pregnant Mama Bear she read how her tummy got bigger, and bigger, and BIGGER! It was really great to see that. Another great book to add to my kids' library. This is a great book to add to any and every child's library.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah for my honest review.
