God Gave Us Love by Lisa Tawn Bergren

This is a sweet little story about God's love. My kids, although older than the recommended 0-3, still enjoy Little Bear. This particular story shares, in easy to understand terms, the different ways we love. Most importantly, the Truth of God's gift of love is at the center.

I like the fact that the story ends with a prayer that little ones could emulate.

However, the text on each page seems overwhelming for the recommended age group. The story is disjointed with more emphasis on the theology of God's love than following a storyline.

The pictures are fun and add to the story. But I wonder how often a toddler would choose this book.

The other issue we had with the story was that you don't know Little Bear is a girl until the end. My son was a tad upset by this.

Lisa Tawn Bergren is the 2012 Christy award winning author of Waterfall. She is the author of more than thirty books, including children's literature, YA, historical and Contemporary Women's fiction. She is married, with three children and makes her home in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

This book was provided by Multnomah publishing for review.
