God Gave Us the World

Take a trip to the bear museum with Little Cub as she learns about the different kinds of bears in different parts of the world. Black bears, panda bears, sloth bears, and grizzly bears are all different from the polar bears that Little Cub is used to seeing. The idea is easily related to the different kinds of people that are on earth. Mama Bear points out that some bears are fast while others take their time. Some bears are quiet and others are loud. The underlying theme is that a person's differences do not make him or her less valuable in God's sight. There is also an emphasis of God's creativity and the importance of taking care of the earth.

I would recommend God Gave Us the World by Lisa Tawn Bergren for children ages five to eight. The book recommends ages three to eight, but I'm not sure a three year old would understand the themes. Both older and younger children will enjoy the colorful and appropriate illustrations by Laura J. Bryant. I found the illustrations to be superior to other children's books I have read lately. 

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from WaterBrook Press as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
