God gave us...

My Review:
What little one wouldn't fall in love with Little Cub as he tries to learn the meaning of Love and Christmas in these two featured books.

In God gave us love, Little Cub learns that there are different types of love: Love between a daddy and mommy with kissy, huggy stuff. There is love between friends and family and also God's love. Little Cub learns that we must choose to love even when we don't feel like loving, and that love brings out the best in us.

In God gave us Christmas, Little Cub learns what Christmas is all about. The true meaning of Christmas is more than Santa. Little Cub learns that Jesus is the best present for everyone.

Many of illustrations in each of these books have a watercolor effect. They are very nicely done. Any child will love meeting Little Cub along with Little Cub's family and friends. These would be two wonderful books to find under the Christmas tree. Books can be read over and over again.

God Gave Us Christmas: As Little Cub and her family prepare to celebrate the most special day of the year, the curious young polar bear begins to wonder… “Who invented Christmas?” Mama’s answer only leads to more questions like “Is God more important than Santa?” So she and Little Cub head off on a polar expedition to find God and to see how he gave them Christmas. Along the way, they find signs that God is at work all around them. Through Mama’s gentle guidance, Little Cub learns about the very first Christmas and discovers that… Jesus is the best present of all.
This enchanting tale provides the perfect opportunity to help young children celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and to discover how very much God loves them. Get more information about this book here.

God Gave Us Love: As Little Cub and Grampa Bear’s fishing adventure is interrupted by mischievous otters, the young polar bear begins to question why we must love others… even the seemingly unlovable.

In answering her questions, Grampa Bear gives tender explanations that teach Little Cub about the different kinds of love that is shared between families, friends, and mamas and papas. Grampa explains that all these kinds of love come from God and that it is important to love others because…
“Any time we show love, Little Cub, we’re sharing a bit of his love.”
This sweet tale will warm the hearts of young children as they learn about all the different sorts of love, while the gentle explanations of each provide a valuable opportunity to encourage children to share with others a “God-sized love.” Get more information about this book here.
