Publisher's Description

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.”

    I love board books. I feel almost a sense of huge loss when I realize my children are beyond board books. It is a good thing but I loved reading those first hardback books to my children.

    Just for grins and giggles I recently read a new board book, God Gave Us Love by Lisa Tawn Bergren and illustrated by Laura J. Bryant.

    Little Cub is fishing with his grandfather when he gets mad at the otters because they are scaring away all the fish. His grandfather turns that into a lesson on love. How we can love the otters because that is what God wants for us.

    The story is cute and well-written. The lesson is timely and important. I'm not sure though it fits in a board book. The print is small and there is a lot on each page. Being a parent who has had children reading board books (and eating them too), I don't think children will sit still and listen to this story at the age board books are designed for.

    The illustrations are superb! I think they could be a bit more colorful and bright. They could also be a bigger on some pages. Children love looking at bright colored pictures.

    If this book was put in a format for slightly older children, even children reading on their own it would be a better fit.

    This is a very cute book from Lisa Tawn Bergren and Laura Bryant - exactly what you wold expect from these two. I found the story a wonderful explanation of not only God's love, but love in general. Little cub struggles with loving "the unlovable" and through the course of the book comes to understand the height and depth that God calls us to.

    This is a great book! Thank you Multnomah publishing for the opportunity to review this book.

    **Over and Over,** that is the best way to describe this little book. Because that is just what you will be doing when you get your hands on this God size Love book. The charming Grandpa Bear captures your little one while the sincerity of the message of love will draw them close to you time and time again. You won't need to worry about the multiple readings by you or them as the book is made child ready with both a hard cover, back, and pages. Lisa Tawn Bergren and Laura J. Bryant have joined together in their God given talents and you will be blessed. Enjoy!

    Have you read any of this author's darling little books? I hadn't until I chose to review this one. I was attracted by the darling cover. Perfect timing since my CJ is almost 2 and loves to snuggle in my lap and have me read him stories. He's never too young to start getting good messages! I'm going to have to order more of these books for his birthday.

    We enjoyed this book with it's engaging story and message of love. The illustrations really hold a little person's (and a big person's too) attention. They are very well done. Usually a child's board is silly and too simple, but this one had great dialogue and wasn't "dumbed down" for a toddler.

    I would definately consider this a CM type of toddler book, for you homeschool moms out there.

    This little story's setting starts out with Little Cub and Grampa out fishing together. There's a problem to be solved (they are bothered by the otters) and Grampa teaches Little Cub to love and forgive. He goes on in the story to develop the love of family and love of God. Wonderful little book! I'm so glad to find something with such good content and worthwhile to read my babies.

    You can find a copy here.@ CBD.

    Excerpt

    "Otters!" Little Cub shouted.

    "Otters! You're scaring away the fish!"

    "Easy, Little Cub," Grampa said. "The otters can share our spot."

    "But Grampa," Little Cub complained, "if they scare all the fish away, we won't get any."

    "That's all right," he said. "Half the fun of fishing is being together, right?"

    "I_guess so."
