God Gave Us You
From the cover:
When a charming polar bear cub climbs into bed one night, she asks her mama a very important question–one that little “human cubs” often wonder about too: “Where did I come from?”
As Mama Bear tucks her young cub under the quilts, she gently, tenderly, and reassuringly communicates the message loving parents everywhere (bears and non-bears alike) want their little ones to hear: “We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because…”God gave us you.”
Perfect for bedtime, naptime, storytime, or anytime, God Gave Us You provides a valuable opportunity to build children’s self-esteem every day and assure each one that he or she truly is a welcomed, precious, and treasured gift from above.
What mom doesn’t dread the “Where do babies come from?” question? This precious book helps Mama answer that question in an age appropriate way. Clearly communicating that your child is a loved and precious gift from God.
My son is only 4 months old but we have been reading this to him each night for the last 3 weeks. He may not understand it yet but he loves sitting on our laps looking at the beautiful artwork and hearing our voices. I know that as soon as he does begin to comprehend the meaning of what we are saying he will be reassured that he is a very special gift from God to us.
It is also a good reminder to Mom and Dad that their little one is not their own, but a gift that God has loaned to them to care for for a short time.
It is hard to break into the children’s book market because the classics are so good but this book is definitely a good one to add to your collection.
