I told you it was a review week! Here is another one that did not disappoint.
I recently came across Blogging for Books and was able to pick from a number of books to review. I don't like to 'review just to review' but when I saw this, I knew we would love it. There are several books in the series by Lisa Tawn Bergren that we already own including God Gave Us Christmas and God Gave Us Heaven.
This book, God Gave Us the World, is just as sweet and beautifully written as the others. When I requested the book, I thought it would be on creation. In a way I suppose it is but it is more an adventure about Mama Bear and Little Cub who take a walk into the world and discover together the uniqueness of various bears all around the world. It weaves into the story that God made us all different and unique. It does so with finesse. Just simple sweet pictures and words.
"Some of us are quiet, others LOUD! Some of us like to move fast, and others take their time. I think it's fun that God made us all bears but all special too."
The above quote was my favorite. Those of you that know my son know which category he fits in and I love him for it. Andrew and I enjoyed the book together with a ton of sharing during our time snuggled on the couch.
And the illustrations are so beautiful. Maybe it is because our son is special needs that I just adore the expressions on the faces of the bears. Laura J. Bryant did a wonderful job of capturing how a 'human' would look if they were in the same scene.
I think all the books end the same way, mama tucking little cub into bed...to dream about their adventure.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
