God Gave Us Love


I love board books. They are sturdy, withstand the chewing of a toddler, and the turning of pages by anxious little hands. Last fall, I reviewed God Gave Us You a board book written by Lisa Tawn Bergren. Providing a spiritually based answer to a toddler's question, "Where did I come from?", the book was beautifully illustrated by Laura J. Bryant. Simple and effective, it quickly became a favorite with my own grandson.

God Gave Us You has been followed by God Gave Us Love, also penned by Bergren and illustrated by Bryant. Once again, charmingly illustrated, the book utilizes the polar bear family to tell the story of God's love and of the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus. Wondering why he has to love people when they make him mad, little cub asks his grandfather for an explanation. As grandfather explains the different kinds of love, he ties in God's love for humanity.

While God Gave Us You was well suited to toddlers (the book targets ages 0 to 3), God Gave Us Love was a more advanced story containing many more words. Unfortunately, it failed to capture the interest of our two year old. The book is better suited for ages 3 or 4 to age 6. Given that, it really was not necessary to produce in the ideal toddler format of a board book.



God Gave Us Love is available from online retailers such as www.amazon.com
