I was so excited when I saw this new board book from Lisa Tawn Bergren. First released in 2009, this new version of the beautifully written children's book, "God Gave Us Love," is now being offered as a board book- perfect for pudgy little hands that like to rip and tear apart anything that resembles paper. This book is definitely sturdy and will stand the test of time from my little one's hands. The illustrations in this book (by Laura J. Bryant) are, in my opinion, even more beautiful than the artwork in Bergren's other book "God Gave Us You."

This books takes us on a journey with Little Cub as he learns the meaning of love. His Grampa tells him that there are lots of different kinds of love, and even though we may not particularly "like" someone, God wants us to love everyone. Grampa lovingly explains that God is love and he created us to love. Love is what "brings out the best in us and our families." This book addresses the love between moms and dads, siblings, family, friends and God. It pretty much covers all the bases in a few short pages.

What I love most about this book is that it clearly presents the Gospel message: Grampa tells Little Cub that "we know God loves us because he sent his Son to save us, to help us make good choices and to forgive us when we don't." This book is a great jumping-off point to have age-appropriate conversations with our children about the love and sacrifice of God and Christ. With a solid message of loving others and loving God, this is a book I plan on reading to my babies for a long time!
