Book Review: God Gave Us So Much

God Gave Us So Much
By Lisa Tawn Bergren

God Gave Us So Much is a three story collection of the stories God Gave Us the World, God Gave Us Love, and God Gave Us Heaven. I hadn't read any of the stories in this series before, but I've definitely heard of the book God Gave Us You, and was happy to check out these three. The series is about Little Cub, an inquisitive little polar bear, as she learns about the world around her by asking her family various questions.

Here's my take on the stories: They have good themes, and Little Cub is an endearing main character, but I thought the stories were a little long for most young children and at times the dialogue and plot were hard to follow. The questions Little Cub has are good conversation starters, and overall I think children will probably like these stories, but it wasn't a children's book that wowed me by any means. This particular book in the God Gave Us series would probably make a great gift book, as it is a nice hardcover copy and a collection of three stories in one.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
