"God Gave Us You" by Lisa Tawn Bergren

Written by Lisa Tawn Bergren, Illustrated by Laura J. Bryant

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 thoughts...
This is the first book of the "God Gave Us..." series ~ there is also God Gave Us Two, Heaven, Love, The World (which I wrote a review about), So Much, and Christmas. I am hoping to get the "God Gave Us Two" after I review this book which is about having a second baby (perfect for our family)!

This book was beautifully illustrated, and beautifully written to answer the question to a little one - where did I come from? It talks about the mama bear being pregnant and how her belly grew bigger and bigger, the ultrasound, how daddy talked to her belly, how they went to the hospital and said how happy they were that "God gave us you".

I would recommend this book for any family - my daughter just loved reading this with me! It is truly a treasure of a book, and one that you won't find anywhere else! If you would like to buy this book, click on the title of the book above where you can purchase it on Amazon.

Thank You so much Blogging for Books & Waterhouse Multnomah for allowing me to share this book with my family! I cannot wait to read more books from you in the future!
