About God Gave Us the World

Little Cub’s trip to a special museum exhibit, “Bears Around the World,” sparks a flurry of questions from the young polar bear who is just beginning to learn about life beyond her North Pole home. 
As Mama Bear shares with her about the different types of places that God has put the various types of bears, with their different kinds of fur and food, Little Cub begins to wonder: Why didn’t God make us all the same?
With Mama’s loving guidance, Little Cub is taught to see the vastness of God’s wonderful creation; His abilities as an amazing, inventive Creator; His desire for us to care for our world, and especially the important lesson that…
“Every bear has a special place in God’s great, big world.”
This adorable story offers young children who are discovering their place in God’s big world an opportunity to learn about the wonder of diversity, the gift of creativity, the importance of caring for His gifts, and how each child-each creation-is special to God.

I love everything that I have ever read from Lisa Tawn Bergren be it children's book, historical fiction or other. I especially love her God Gave Us series. Each book is adorable to boot, but has such a great message that really helps to explain things about God to small children. I love all of these books. I really need to add God Gave Us Love and God Gave Us Two to our collection and then we'll have them all!! Thanks to WaterBrook...

The book has a very genuine tone and does not succumb to clichés or cheesiness which many children's stories do. The mama bear also uses excellent imagery to really drive the...

It did exactly that! Through the simple idea of using the differences between different types of bears I was able to teach my boys how people living around the...

She told of the Panda Bear in China, Black Bears in the forest, and Grizzly Bears that had the longest tongues of any bear. The cubs were amazed at...

I was recently sent a copy of God Gave Us the World by Lisa Tawn Bergren from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group. (I've written about two of her other books here.) This story is in the same vein as her other books in this series - a little polar bear poses a fairly significant theological question to Mama Bear and the resulting answer and dialogue is this book. In God Gave Us the World, Little Bear asks his mama if all bears look just like...
