I have seen the previous books from Lisa Tawn Bergren in the bookstores previously but I never bought one. I always thought that the drawings were fantastics though.
Imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to review not one but two of her latest books; God Gave Us Love and God Gave Us Christmas.
In God Gave Us Love the children will learn that it is important to love others no matter what. Little Cub is very frustrated with the otters and can't seem to find love in him for them. Grandpa Bear explains the different kind of love that God gave us - love to share between families, friends and parents. And Little Cub is reminded that every time we show love to someone - even when they are unlovable - we show a bit of God's love to that person.
In God Gave Us Christmas, Little Cub is wondering who invented Christmas. And his mother takes him on a journey so that he can discover who created Christmas in the first place. As they explore together their environment, Little Cub will find God in places where he never thought about. He then concludes that Jesus is the best gift of all!
My children and I enjoyed the two books. We read them together while sitting in the living room. We enjoyed the beautiful drawings and the adventures of Little Cub with his grandpa and mother. We talked about love and Christmas afterward. The four kids loved Little Cub and even after reading it, they would pick up the books just to look at the pictures.
I find these two books very well done and easy to understand for little minds. They give the basics information about love and Christmas and the children enjoy the pictures. These two books are definitively good books to give to children during Christmas.

I have two children - 2 years and 5 years. This story explains the real reason we have Christmas without ignoring Santa. Santa reminds us of good things like generosity and sharing, but it is God who gave us Christmas!

Little Cub wants to know who invented Christmas. Mama takes Little Cub on a polar expedition to find God & see how He gave us Christmas.
A beautiful story showing God in creation, discovering the true meaning of Christmas & how very much God loves us all.

I was more than happy to receive two books in the "God's Gave..." series by Lisa Tawn Bergen as our toddler son is beginning to enjoy books. Unfortunately, these books are for a little older child, I would suggest between 5-8 years old, rather than for children not yet school age.
In terms of content, the books are a nice way of introducing the concept of God as the Giver of all things. In God Gave Us Love the idea that there are different types of love and yet they all come as a reflection of God's love for us is clear. As well, in God Gave Us Christmas the foundational meaning of Christmas is explained. The "family" in the story are a traditional, mother & father bear, grandpa bear, and cub with brothers and sisters. The simply yet clear message of each book is in line with Scripture and represents good theology.
The illustrations and artwork seem nice, though I would not pretend to be any sort of accurate assessor of the quality of this area.
From looking at these two books, I would guess the whole series is solid and a decent purchase for young families.
