Book Review: God Gave Us Love by Lisa Tawn Bergren

Board Book $6.99

Overview

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.

“Any time we show love, Little Cub, we’re sharing a bit of his love.”


In a sturdy format, ideal for the littlest hands at storytime, bedtime, or anytime, God Gave Us You assures each child that he or she truly is a treasured gift from the Lord.


We had already had a chance to review God Gave Us You, the first book in this series and loved it!  We were glad to have the opportunity to review God Gave Us Love.  The book is a sturdy board book and perfect for little hands.  The illustrations are adorable!  The idea of a book teaching children that God gave us the different kinds of love is a good one.  But, I have to admit that the story was disappointing.  The conversations between the grandpa and the little cub are strange, not at all like a normal dialogue between grown up and child.  The flow of the story is also strange.  I have a hard time reading it because it seems like parts of it are out of place. 

I received a complimentary copy of God Gave Us Love from Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review.  I received no other compensation.
