Publisher's Description

Little Cub’s trip to a special museum exhibit, "Bears Around the World," sparks a flurry of questions from the young polar bear who is just beginning to learn about life beyond her North Pole home. 
 
As Mama Bear shares with her about the different types of places that God has put the various types of bears, with their different kinds of fur and food, Little Cub begins to wonder: Why didn’t God make us all the same?
 
With Mama’s loving guidance, Little Cub is taught to see the vastness of God’s wonderful creation; His abilities as an amazing, inventive Creator; His desire for us to care for our world, and especially the important lesson that…
 
"Every bear has a special place in God’s great, big world."
 
This adorable story offers young children who are discovering their place in God’s big world an opportunity to learn about the wonder of diversity, the gift of creativity, the importance of caring for His gifts, and how each child-each creation-is special to God.

    Celebrating Differences

    The latest installment in Lisa Tawn Berren's popular God Gave Us series of children's picture books is absolutely adorable. God Gave Us the World is definitely my childrens' favorite out of the three books from the series that we own. The entire polar bear family visits the museum to view an exhibit that displays a few of the many types of bears around the world. Using these bears as a jumping off point, Little Bear and Mama Bear enter into a discussion that explores the unique differences that make each bear unique, a gentle exploration of conservation, and a celebration of diversity within God's creation.

    As always, Laura J. Bryant's artwork is lovely and whimsical. Soft pastel shades, playful characters, and richly colored landscapes all contribute to the frequency with which my two-year-old pulls this title off the shelf for my husband or I to read her. These illustrations keep little eyes busy while the text gently teaches lessons appropriate for 3-6 year-olds about the nature of God and the joys of differences.

    Of course, the ultimate goal of this series of books is for children to apply the truths the polar bears are learning in their bear-oriented world to the child's own world. Bears are different and there are many types of bears should (hopefully) eventually carry over into people are different and there are many types of people - we are all created by God and are all special and unique in our own ways. This book offers a gentle and playful way to introduce this concept through a well-thought out storyline and a fun family adventure.

    Has your child ever asked you about the world he/she lives in? This book would be a perfect introduction to the big, wide world that God made.

    This book starts out with Little Cub and his family heading to the museum. The theme was bears around the world. On their way, Little Cub asks his mom if all bears have pink tongues. This started a discussion about God being creative and making different places to live, making different bears, and different bear tongues. Little Cub is amazed that there are different bears living in different places around the world.

    Laura J. Bryant is a wonderful artist. The adorable illustrations are colorful and reveals the creativity that God used to make us and the world that we live in.

    I really like what was written here which I will quote from the book. "The whole world is like a mirror of God's work, Little Cub. Out of all the places he could've put us, he chose this world, Earth, to be our home. He made it just for us. God gave us this special world and every creature in it."

    This is a delightful story of God's creativity. As a grandmother, I was touched by the conversations between a baby polar bear cub and her mother and the obvious love between them. The theme of the story is set up in the different types of snow that falls and the uniqueness of each snowflake. The family then takes a trip to the zoo, spending time looking at and discussing the qualities of different bears. It is a pleasant tale that describes God's imagination and joy in making bears different rather than making them all the same. The illustrations throughout the book are very nice and portray the same gentleness and wonder as the text. It is a sweet and enjoyable book, and is a good springboard to discussing the differences and similarities in individuals and people groups. This book is part of the God Gave Us series of books.(Disclaimer: WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group provided this book to me without cost for my review.)

    I received this book from Multnomah Publishing for my honest review.

    We all loved this book, mom and dad included. God Gave Us the World is a sweet book about a little cub who learns that not all bears are Polar Bears, they don't all eat the same food, look the same, or live in the same climate. His world grows as he learns about the creativity of his creator. I love the charming illustrations in this book. The mama bear speaks affectionately to her little cub, explaining to him about the God who loves him and created a whole world displaying His majesty and creativity. This is a new family favorite, especially for my little ones.

    Mama bear is taking Little Cub to a museum exhibit about bears. Little Cub has many questions about bears and about how other bears are different from polar bears. Mama Bear takes this opportunity to teach her cub about God the Creator and the wonderful world He created. She leads Little Cub to see the diversity of God's Creation and the responsibility we all share to care for it.

    I really liked this picture book and the characters that the author created. I think that small children will relate well to Little Cub and the curiosity that she exhibits in her questioning. The Mama Bear character is so kind and gentle in her approach to her daughter and explains things directly in language that her daughter can understand.

    The illustrator of this book, Laura J. Bryant, does a beautiful job of showing the words of the author in her illustrations of the characters. I love her use of vibrant colors that capture the attention of small children and keep them focused on the story. Her drawings are detailed and accurate as seen in the claws of the various bears and the way they move and eat.
