God Gave Us Two by LIsa Tawn Bergren, art by Laura J. Bryant

"God Gave Us Two" is the adorable story of Mama and Papa Polar Bear and their Little Cub.  Little Cub is trying hard to adjust to the soon-to-be arrival of the new baby bear.  She wants to know why they need a new baby, and if they don't like it, can they send it back? If it cries too much, can she move next door? Her many questions are responded to sensitively by Mama and Papa Bear, reassuring her along the way that there is plenty of room in their hearts for two.  A wonderful book to share when your family is about to expand, and especially recommended for anyone expecting multiples (shh! don't tell, there are a surprise set of twins at the end).  The art work is endearing, especially the growth of Mama Bear's belly as the pages go by. A beautiful reminder that children are a gift from God.

This book was provided to me free of charge by Waterbrook Multnomah for review purposes. Please rate my review at this link, so I can continue to receive free books for the church library:
