As Little Cub and Grampa Bear’s fishing adventure is interrupted by mischievous otters, the young polar bear begins to question why we must love others… even the seemingly unlovable.
In answering her questions, Grampa Bear gives tender explanations that teach Little Cub about the different kinds of love that is shared between families, friends, and mamas and papas. Grampa explains that all these kinds of love come from God and that it is important to love others because…
“Any time we show love, Little Cub, we’re sharing a bit of his love.”
This sweet tale will warm the hearts of young children as they learn about all the different sorts of love, while the gentle explanations of each provide a valuable opportunity to encourage children to share with others a “God-sized love.”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What an absolutely delightful children’s book. This is my favorite of Lisa’s children’s stories so far. In a fabulous and adorable manner Grampa explains to Little Cub why and how God gave us love. The pictures are too cute if you take the time to see the side line stories and hear the slight whine and pitch of Little Cub’s voice. I absolutely love one picture that sent me into fits of laughter with snowballs. *wink* I treasure this book and I am so glad I have this story to be able to share one of God’s very powerful truths in such a great explanation way with my daughter. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to get my hands on others of Lisa’s children’s books.

I also really enjoy Lisa’s adult Christian historical fiction as well as her other God Gave Us titles, such as God Gave Us Heaven. Read more… God Gave Us Heaven is one of the best children’s book with the most important message that is often hard to explain. I love Lisa Tawn Bergren’s adult fiction series and now I love her children’s books as well and cannot wait to add others to my shelf. The pictures are wonderful and provide for much exploring and conversation. It is definitely a book I would recommend for my nieces and nephews.
