God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren (art by Laura J. Bryant)

This is a beautiful book written by Lisa Tawn Bergren and illustrated by Larua J. Bryant that I bought for my daughter's first birthday. As you read God Gave Us You with your children you can share the miracle of life and how special each child is to both parents and God.

The back cover of the book says:

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 young 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 as 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 above.

This is a book, I'm glad that we own as it can be read over and over again through the years.
