God Gave Us So Much by Lisa Tawn Bergen, art by Laura Bryant

I'm taking a little detour from my regular blogging to review a children's book!  "God Gave Us So Much" is a limited edition, 3 book treasury including "God Gave Us The World", "God Gave Us Love", and "God Gave Us Heaven".  Lisa Bergen weaves the meaning of God's endless love into this cute series about Little Cub.  Little Cub is a polar bear, with plenty of questions for Mama, Papa, and Grampa Bear.  He learns about diversity:  "God made a whole world full of bears. And we all look a little different".  He learns about Creation: "God's world is like a mirror of God's work, Little Cub", and he comes to understand what God's love really means.  In "God Gave Us Heaven", Little Cub is given a sensitive lesson on what death and Heaven mean, ending with a very simple salvation message.  I would read this series to a child who is starting to ask "Why?" questions.    The artwork was my favorite part of these books. The pictures are adorable.

This book series was provided free of charge to me by Waterbrook Multnomah for review purposes.

The Global Warming Deception by Grant R. Jeffrey

I had a very difficult time reading Grant Jeffrey's "The Global Warming Deception".  While it does a wonderful job of presenting the scientific evidence AGAINST global warming, it reads too much like a textbook. I had a terrible time staying focused on the reading.  So, if you need to do a presentation, it would make a great reference book, but I don't recommend it as a "sit down with a cup of tea and read for enlightenment" story.
