God Gave Us......You! Two! Christmas!

God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren has been one of my favorite books since our first daughter was born. It took awhile for me to be able to get through it without tears. The story is told from a mother's perspective answering questions from her curious cub. Mama bear explains to her child that she is a special gift from God given to her mama and papa. All questions point back to God's perfect plan of creating this family. My girls enjoy it as much as I do.

Of course we had to get God Gave Us Two when our second daughter was on her way. This time Little Cub is afraid that with the addition of the new baby, she will be forgotten. Mama and Papa assure Little Cub that God's gift of two will be a blessing, even to Little Cub. This is a great book to get a little one ready for the arrival of a sibling. Many of the fears of a child are addressed and Little Cub is comforted. A perfect gift for a child with a new sibling on the way!

Children are a gift from God; they are his reward. Psalm 127:3

God Gave Us Christmas addresses the question, "Is God more important than Santa?". Little Cub and Mama set out on an adventure to see how God gave us Christmas. They talk about Jesus coming to earth as a baby, the all mighty power of God, and how much He loves each one of us. Mama explains how Santa is a reminder of many good things but how Jesus is the best present of all and that GOD gave us Christmas. Our family isn't anti-Santa, so for us this is a good book that touches on a number of topics that your family can expound upon depending on the age of your child.
