Goodreads Summary: As Little Cub and her family prepare to celebrate the most special day of the year, the curious young polar bear begins to wonder… “Who invented Christmas?”God Gave Us Christmas was the perfect book to read to my four-year-old in the days leading up to Christmas. He loved the story and illustrations, and that’s saying a lot for my son. This is the boy who gave up story books a year ago in favor of ‘information books.’ If the book is not about space, plants, animals or insects, he usually wants nothing to do with it.
Mama’s answer only leads to more questions like “Is God more important than Santa?” So she and Little Cub head off on a polar expedition to find God and to see how he gave them Christmas. Along the way, they find signs that God is at work all around them. Through Mama’s gentle guidance, Little Cub learns about the very first Christmas and discovers that… Jesus is the best present of all.
This enchanting tale provides the perfect opportunity to help young children celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and to discover how very much God loves them.
God Gave Us Christmas provides another way for parents to help children understand the reasons why we celebrate Christmas and Santa’s role in the holiday. The book simply and lovingly illustrates that through Jesus, God gave us Christmas.
I borrowed God Gave Us Christmas in ebook format from my library; I will be buying a copy of this sweet little book to enjoy with my kids for years to come.
My Rating: Really Good!
