God Gave Us Love by Lisa Tawn Bergen

The "God Gave Us..." books by Lisa Tawn Bergen have by far become my favorite children's books of late, and "God Gave Us Love" does not disappoint.  With Laura Bryant's adorable artwork, and a dialogue between Little Cub and Grampa about the true meaning of love, even the adult reader gets caught up in the story. "God Gave Us Love" answers the hard questions about can we love THEM (they aren't like us, and I don't like them!), how is that kind of love different from loving our family, and what exactly is the love of God?

My favorite line from this book is when Grampa tells Little Cub that "God is love, so He created us to love. He ties us all together like the strings on our snowshoes, heart to heart.". What a great word picture!

I highly recommend this book for your little one ages 0-3 years. Although, I had no problem reading it myself, and I'm way past three! It would make a great gift for any little person. Read an excerpt, get details about the book, or add it to your cart at
