I am excited to give God Gave Us You along with God Gave Us Two to my little nephew for Easter, because they are both special, sentimental, books.
The story starts with the little bear asking the always scary question to parents, “where did I come from?” After that the book is filled with the mama bear answering his question in a beautiful child friendly way, telling of how God gave the little bear to his mommy and daddy, and how excited her and his daddy were for his arrival.
Note, I just realized I have been calling the little bear a “he”, but in actuality the book calls her a “she”.
Are cute scenes of the bear family.
Pictures of polar bear angels were a little strange to me… but to each his own, I guess.
How strong is the book?
This is a hardcover book that is relatively strong, but my nephew hasn’t gotten hold of it yet.
Who the book is for:
This would make a great gift for a new baby, or for a baby shower. This book is also good for reading to children once they are old enough to start asking a lot of questions.
What I liked:
God Gave Us You is a sweet story of parental love.
What I didn’t like:
As I stated above, personally I didn’t like the polar bear angels.
This is an excellent book and will make a great gift. I give God Gave Us You 5 out of 5 stars!
