Little Cub’s trip to a special museum exhibit, “Bears Around the World,” sparks a flurry of questions from the young polar bear who is just beginning to learn about life beyond her North Pole home.
As Mama Bear shares with her about the different types of places that God has put the various types of bears, with their different kinds of fur and food, Little Cub begins to wonder: Why didn’t God make us all the same?
With Mama’s loving guidance, Little Cub is taught to see the vastness of God’s wonderful creation; His abilities as an amazing, inventive Creator; His desire for us to care for our world, and especially the important lesson that…
“Every bear has a special place in God’s great, big world.”
I adore books with a Christian message. Any way that I can share the love of God with my kids, I look forward to and welcome. God Gave Us the World by Lisa Tawn Bergren is another fine example of a book of this kind. I read this book and was impressed with the illustrations and the writing. Having Little Cub learn that there are many different kinds of bears did not really correlate to my kids that this is similar to their lives. But, it certainly opened a dialogue with my son that he is different that everyone else. He is special. But, it also let him know that God created all people, all things, and every single person and object is a gift from God because he loves us.
I would recommend this book to anyone. It is very cute and my kids loved it. You can purchase God Gave Us the World for $10.00 from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group. You can also find Waterbrook on Facebook.
