This is a limited three-book edition that includes Lisa Tawn Bergren’s God Gave Us the World, God Gave Us Love, and God Gave Us Heaven. This hard back special edition book includes a ribbon book mark. I received this book free for review from Blogging For Books.

The stories follow Little Cub and her polar bear family. Little Cub is a curious little bear, constantly asking questions. In God Gave Us the World, Little Cub engages in a discussion with her Mama whilst they visit the “Bears Around The World” museum. Little Cub is curious about all of the different bears – where they come from, what they eat, what they look like – and learns that God makes each bear different. The focus is on God the Creator and the world that He creatively made.

In God Gave Us Love, Little Cub learns from Grampa about love. The story starts with Little Cub being annoyed with some playful otters and Grampa teaches her through discussion that love is not always easy but it is always right. He tells her about God loving us most of all by sending His own Son so that we can choose to never be separated from Him.

Lastly, God Gave Us Heaven has Little Cub talking with her Papa about what happens when this life is over – when we die. Papa answers all of Little Cub’s questions in a patient, informative way, teaching her not only what heaven will be like, but that they only way to heaven is by choosing Jesus.

I really enjoyed reading these books to my children. Little Cub’s constant questions remind of my own 3 year old son. The curiosity of the little bear is not squashed by impatient adults, but answered honestly and in an educational way.
