***Special thanks to Laura Tucker, WaterBrook Multnomah Publicity, for sending me a review copy.***

My Review: Our family has enjoyed Bergren's, "God Gave Us" series for several years now!  This latest title in board book form is just perfect to pop into a toddler's stocking this Christmas!  In fact, that's exactly what I'm going to do with my review copy---Liam, 18 months, will be thrilled!
      Our kids love to follow along with Little Cub as he discovers answers to questions about God and Creation that all of us, at any age, ask at one point or another.
      Bryant's sweet and soothing artwork brings such a peaceful feel to the book.  Thanks, Lisa and Laura, for another great keepsake book!

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:

As Little Cub and Grampa Bear’s fishing adventure is interrupted by mischievous otters, the young polar bear begins to question why we must love others… even the seemingly unlovable.

In answering her questions, Grampa Bear gives tender explanations that teach Little Cub about the different kinds of love that is shared between families, friends, and mamas and papas. Grampa explains that all these kinds of love come from God and that it is important to love others because…

“Any time we show love, Little Cub, we’re sharing a bit of his love.”

This sweet tale will warm the hearts of young children as they learn about all the different sorts of love, while the gentle explanations of each provide a valuable opportunity to encourage children to share with others a “God-sized love.” Now in a sturdy format, ideal for the littlest hands at storytime, bedtime, or anytime. Would make a great Christmas gift!
