Summary (from GoodReads):

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.

“Any time we show love, Little Cub, we’re sharing a bit of his love.”

In a sturdy format, ideal for the littlest hands at storytime, bedtime, or anytime, God Gave Us You assures each child that he or she truly is a treasured gift from the Lord.

My Thoughts:



This board book is absolutely adorable. The perfect size for little ones…I always prefer board books for reading to my nieces and nephews because I know that they will stand up to the pushing and pulling of all those little fingers.  The illustrations are spot on – Wonderfully detailed and cute as a button with gorgeous soft color.

The message is also spot on.  Grampa teaches Little Cub that though love can be expressed in different ways all of God’s creatures are deserving of it…even the “annoying” ones like interrupting  otters or pesky little brothers and sisters.

Was it worth my Time?
