Christmas Book Week–God Gave Us Christmas

December 15, 2010

Do you know this series by Lisa Tawn Bergren? God Gave Us . . .

We received God Gave Us Two as a gift when we were expecting our second child.  I later bought God Gave Us Heaven when my 5 year old started asking questions I didn’t know how to answer for him.

Last year I found God Gave Us Christmas.

The book features the same polar bear family as the previous titles.  Little Cub asks questions on the mind of little kids everywhere like

  • “Is God more important than Santa?”
  • “But Jesus was just a baby! How could he be a king?”
  • “Would Jesus have come for mean ol’ Maggie the Moose or grumpy ol’ Frankie the Fox?”

Bergren answers the questions in poetic and appropriate ways for little kids. I might like this one a little more than my sons do, but I think the message is very important and the pictures are beautiful. I also think it might stick with them as they grow older.
