1kyteacherAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sweet Story!December 17, 20121kyteacherAge: 35-44Gender: femaleGod Gave Us Christmas is yet another book by Lisa Tawn Bergren in the God Gave Us Series. I was so excited to read this book, and I was not disappointed in it!
Little Cub is so excited about Christmas and Santa. However, Mama explains that Christmas isn't about Santa. It is about Jesus. Mama takes Little Cub on an adventure to show her God. They find God everywhere.
I love that in the story, Bergren stresses the importance of the celebration of Christmas, the birth of Christ and adds that Santa just reminds us of giving. Mama points out in the story that Jesus was sent for all people.
For parents who want to help their children understand the true meaning of Christmas, this is the book!
I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Press for the purpose of an honest review.
