God Gave Us Christmas is a sweet story of a little bear cub that asks his Mommy to help him find Santa. Instead she suggests they look for God. On their journey together Moma bear points out God's light through the northern lights, His power that is able to move glaciers, the morning star, a surprise flower that bloomed unexpected. With each discovery Moma bear points her cub to the real reason for celebration: the birth of Jesus. God Gave Us Christmas is clever and delicate at explaining that Jesus is more important and exciting than Santa. This is accomplished without denying Santa's existance, but recognizing him as a reminder to be generous and caring to others. The illustrations are also very impressive.
