Review: God Gave Us You

God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren is a fabulous book for children. It explores where babies come from in the mildest way. With some beautiful illustrations by Laura J. Bryant, young children can get a brief, age appropriate idea of pregnancy and birth. God's gift of babies is explored with animals and warm words. This is a terrific read for any young child that is asking questions about where babies come from. It would be fabulous for any family.

This book was especially appropriate for our kids because they have a new cousin coming soon and our cat just had kittens. Although Apple has asked lots of questions about babies before, this book just solidified everything we had already told her. For any family with a new baby on the way or new animal arriving, this book would be a great springboard for conversation.

It is also another way to discuss God's love with your children. It will help to explain further their unique qualities that God has given them. We all love this book!

My favorite quote from the book, "Yes, my special child. God gave us you." What child doesn't want to hear that?

I received this book for the purpose of review from Waterbrook Multnomah. The opinions are entirely my own.
