God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren was not was not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be a simple cute polar bear story and the end. As I was reading I realized that there is a lot more to the book than one could realize. The story itself is simple and cute, but the idea is that children need to be told that they matter. This book points out to a child that God had a plan and that he or she matters. Many children don't hear these words or believe that they matter and this book says, directly to them,that they are special. The pictures are cute and the book is the perfect size and understanding to read to an infant and older. Really, there is no age limit on who needs to hear that they are a gift from God.
