God gave us the world review

we are longtime fans of lisa tawn bergren's books, God gave us you and God gave us two so we were quite happy to receive God gave us the world.  mama bear does such a good job explaining truths about God and life to little cub. 

just like in God gave us you, mama bear highlights how special and unique little cub is.  in this book, little cub learns about all different kinds of bears that live in all different kinds of places in the world.  while those bears might not eat the same things that little cub does, or live in the snow like little cub, they are part of God's creation, just like he is.

i want to teach my kids to take care of the earth, to have an ecological sensitivity but sometimes i struggle to find books that talk about this in a way that agrees with my own philosophy and theology.  i think this book does a good job talking about the earth as God's creation but also pointing out our responsibility to honor God by honoring his creation.  not only is this a great book to add to your collection, it is a great one to read for earth day.

God gave us the world is available for $10.99 and is appropriate for ages 2-6.

this is a mamabuzz review.  i received this book for free from random house for the purpose of this review.  regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.
