God Gave Us Love Review by Karen Yuen

Our family loves this series of books from Lisa Tawn Bergren! God Gave Us Love is sure to be a favorite for your family too! This series is especially nice for children ages 3 to 8. Each story is about a polar bear family and discusses some aspect of God working in our lives. The richly painted watercolor illustrations make these stories really come alive!

This particular story, God Gave Us Love, is a warm and tender tale. Grampa Bear explains different kinds of love to Little Cub. For example, the love between them is different than the love Little Cub's parents and siblings have for her. The sweet story culminates with Grampa explaining how God loves us and shows us His love through Jesus. Jesus provides us with a love that will never end--a God-sized love!

I'm sure you'll enjoy this story as you snuggle with your children or grandchildren. This book would also make a wonderful gift from a grandparent to a grandchild! Enjoy this story and God's love!
