God Gave Us Love by Lisa Tawn Bergren
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.”
God Gave US Love is a really sweet, endearing, story which explains how important various kinds of love are in each persons life.
Grampa bear and Little Cub are out fishing and their conversation turns into the ways we can show God's love by sharing with others, just as Grampa wants Little Cub to share his fishing spot with some lively otters who unknowingly keep scaring away the fish.
Family and parental love are also touched on and talked about in easy to understand language, that any child can appreciate. And at the end of it all, Grampa brings the focus back on God's ultimate love for us as the most important of all.
With lots of useful lessons, and a concise yet tender way of explaining things, the author once again delivers another classic children's book that should delight the heart of any little one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Waterbrook/Multnomah Publishers in exchange for my honest opionion.
