Book Review: God Gave Us the World

This book arrived on the perfect day, the kids were home due to snow, so the moment I pulled God Gave Us the World from its packaging, little hands grabbed for the book.

God Gave Us the World, by Lisa Tawn Bergren, is part of the children's book series, God Gave Us.  This book was my introduction to the series, and is described as

"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, an how each child - each creation - is special to God."
The book's pictures are appealing to children, along with the book's characters.  The story follows Little Cub's trip to the museum, where he learns about bears around the world.  Mama Bear answer's his questions about the differences among the bears, talking about diversity, and how God made us all.  The story discusses diversity, and how God made everyone different, and that God wants a relationship with all of us; two important topics which have been written at a child's level of understanding.

I would recommend this book for families.  I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.  To see the other books in the series visit WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group; also, there are coloring pages to print out, which go along with the books.  

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
