God Gave Us Easter - Lisa Tawn Bergern, Illustrator - Laura J Bryant

5 Stars!

"God loved us so much he wanted us to always be with him too. That’s why God knew he’d need to give us Easter.”

As Little Cub celebrates Easter with Papa, Mama, and her brother and sister, she begins to ask her papa questions about this very special day of the year.  Papa lovingly explains God’s plans for his children, while taking Little Cub on a memorable walk through her stunning Arctic world, and he shares how Easter came about in clear, simple terms that even the littlest cubs can understand.

This is such a sweet story. It is very cute and written in a language that is easy to understand even for very young children. I would love to get the rest of this series.
You can't talk about this book without also mentioning the pictures. They are gorgeous, soft drawings that really add to the story.

Here is a pic. I took of a couple of the pages -
 Isn't it cute? I chose that one because it is my favorite one in the book.

All in all this is a beautifully written and illustrated book about how God gave us Easter. This would make a great read-a-loud story for your children or grandchildren.
