Press Release

New Addition to God Gave Us Series Celebrates Families of Different Shapes and Sizes
 
“Whenever somebody is loving and caring for another, that’s a family.”

The 2.5 million-selling God Gave Us series returns with a new heartwarming and colorful story, God Gave Us Family (WaterBrook, Oct. 17, 2017) by Lisa Tawn Bergren, helping children understand that each family is uniquely knit together.
 
As Little Pup and his parents travel to a family reunion, his curiosity leads him to wonder why the families he sees along the way don’t mirror his own. With the help of Mama and Papa, Little Pup discovers that while he is an only child, some families have several children, some adopt children as their own—just as “God makes each of us part of his family”—and some are led by grandparents or just one parent.
 
As Little Pup discovers these differences, the stunning illustrations help each forest family’s story spring to life and cleverly attribute personalities to the individual woodland creatures.
 
God Gave Us Family is a wonderful resource for parents and grandparents to guide conversations with their little ones ages 3 to 7 about the different ways families are structured; though they may not all look the same, each one is a beautiful gift from God.
