About God Gave Us You

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.

Also available in the God Gave Us series:

God Gave Us You is one of those rare children's books that is touching without being sappy (or dull). It's paced wonderfully with just the right amount of words on each page and large, full color illustrations that have been excitedly received by our daughter and sons. The overall theme, besides the obvious theme of the birth of a child, is that of love; the love a parent has for his/her child and the love God has for all of us. Sometimes,...

I am in tears within just a few pages of beginning...

This book is completely adorable!! The illustrations are absolutely beautiful! This story is so well written and easy for a child to understand. It also uniquely tells the story of creation in a way that the little "human cubs" can understand and not get confused by all the adult language that goes along with this topic.
