Mama polar bear tells Little Cub that her birth was a gift from God.Publishers Description
When a charming polar bear cub climbs into bed one night, she asks her Mama a very important question--one that little "human cubs" often wonder about, too: "Where did I come from?"
As Mama bear tucks her youngest cub under the quilts, she gently, tenderly, and reassuringly communicates the message loving parents everywhere (bears and non-bears alike) want their little ones to hear: "We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because--God gave us you."
Perfect for bedtime, naptime, storytime or anytime, "God Gave Us You" provides a valuable opportunity to build children's self-esteem every day and assure each one that he or she truly is a welcomed, precious, and treasured gift from the Lord.

|cute...but not for all Dec 15, 2008|
|Cute story & illustrations. (Story assumes parents visited doctors & gave birth at hospital so those parents who had home births might not find the book appropriate for them.) |
|Such a sweet story to share with your lil one Dec 15, 2008|
|My daughter is only 6 mos. right now, but I HAD TO HAVE This story! IT's so sweet in explaining about how parents plan and ask God for their children and consider them a blessing. I can't wait to share and read this to her for years to come. It talks about the mama's growing belly, daddy talking to her inside the womb, listening to the heartbeat and going to the hospital to be born. Very cute and great pictures too!|
|A Precious Book Oct 16, 2008|
|This book is wonderful!! It explains the subject of where we come from in a thoughtful, truthful, and biblical manner. It's heartwarming, and my daughter absolutely loves it. She feels so special (as she should) when we read it and apply it to her. We actually have used this book to talk a little bit about the upcoming birth of our next baby. My daughter completely understands that her mommy's tummy is going to get bigger and bigger as the baby gets bigger and bigger just like the polar bear in God Gave Us You.|
|My FAVORITE book for baby so far! Jun 30, 2008|
|I absolutely love this book! I cried the first time I read it and still do! What a gift from God, indeed, a child is and it is refreshing to talk about God's role in our childrens' lives. I have looked at and purchased many books in preparation for my little one, and this one BY FAR impressed me most. I highly recommend this book if you want to talk about God and you sheer joy for your baby!|
|I'm not religious but... Apr 29, 2008|
|I'm not religious at all and I am not sure what we will do when it comes to believing in god. I think we will tell her about god and she can decide later what she wants to believe but this book is just adorable!It tells your child how important they are to you and how you would never "trade" them for any other baby. The book describes how your parents will always love you because you are were chosen just for them. I love how they talk about the excitement of the baby, getting a bigger belly during pregnancy and going to the hospital. Then at the end the little bear goes to bed happy because she knows how much her parents love her! I am going to buy "God Gave Us Two" because we are expecting another baby in a couple weeks!!|
