God Gave Us Angels (Book Review #2) by Lisa Tawn Bergren art by Laura J. Bryant

I have never written a second review for the same book, but I felt like I needed to this time.  My husband said my first review didn't seem like it was written for a children's book.  I kept thinking about that, so here I am again.

In the story of God Gave Us Angels, a polar bear dad is having a conversation with his daughter, Little Cub, as she asks different questions about something she heard about from the bunnies, angels.  She asks questions such as "Have you ever seen one (an angel)?", and "What do angels do all day?"  Papa goes on to explain a lot of different aspects of these celestial beings in terms that little ones can understand.

I have all of the books in the God Gave Us series.  This one is a little unique for several reasons.  In the other books, you see Little Cub and many different family members, but this one is just a conversation between a father and daughter.  The topic is angels, which is a very special and beautiful topic in scripture. The author has presented young ones with a view into something that is important in the Kingdom of God.  These beings worship God and serve Him and us, and she has presented the material in such a way that little hearts can embrace it.

The illustrations are beautiful and sweet.  Even thought it is set in the Arctic, the art is still warm and cozy.  There are other animals in the story besides the polar bears that you and your child can talk about.  For homeschoolers, this would be a fun book to use as a starting point for exploration of the Arctic.

This is a great book to read as a bedtime story or at nap time.  I have already read this to my little guy a couple of times while snuggling him close.  I recommend this book to all parents who want to increase their child's knowledge of spiritual truths.  It is a great book for cuddling and connecting with your little ones.

God bless you as you read.
