God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren


Do you have a little one who is wondering where they came from and how they got here?  That question eventually comes up!  This cute little board book by Lisa Tawn Bergren is a sweet little book reminding little ones that they are a gift from God.  Every page reminds the little reader that "God gave us you."

I think this book is a cute gift for new moms or moms with toddlers that have many questions usually beginning with "Why?"  This book has a gentle way of talking about the issue of how children are born and points them to the giver of life, God.  I appreciate how the book makes the child feel special since they are a special gift.

Here is a sweet, little excerpt from the book: "Little Cub closed her eyes, said her prayers, and heard Mama whisper, 'Good night.'  She felt happy and safe because God had given her-little her to Mama and Papa, and they wouldn't trade her for the world.  'Because God gave us you,' Mama had said. 'Because God gave us you.'"

I know how special my little girl is and we are so thankful that God gave her to us!
Below is a cute coloring page that goes along with the book.  Enjoy!
