As Mama Bear shares with her about the different types of places that God has put the various types of bears, with their different kinds of fur and food, Little Cub begins to wonder: Why didn’t God make us all the same?

This adorable story offers young children who are discovering their place in God’s big world an opportunity to learn about the wonder of diversity, the gift of creativity, the importance of caring for His gifts, and how each child-each creation-is special to God.
God Gave Us Love
As Little Cub and Grampa Bear’s fishing adventure is interrupted by mischievous otters, the young polar bear begins to question why we must love others… even the seemingly unlovable.
In answering her questions, Grampa Bear gives tender explanations that teach Little Cub about the different kinds of love that is shared between families, friends, and mamas and papas. Grampa explains that all these kinds of love come from God and that it is important to love others because…

God Gave Us Heaven
As the sun rises on her snow-covered world, Little Cub wonders aloud…
“What is heaven like?”
With tender words, her Papa describes a wonderful place, free of sadness and tears, where God warmly welcomes his loved ones after their life on earth is over. Little Cub and Papa spend the day wandering their beautiful, invigorating arctic world while she asks all about God’s home: How do we get to heaven? Will we eat there? Will I get to see you in heaven? Papa patiently answers each question, assuring her that…
“Heaven will be full of everything good.”
This gentle story provides satisfying answers for a young child’s most difficult questions about what happens after this life, inviting “little cubs” to find comfort in knowing that God Gave Us Heaven.

This is a stunning treasury that would be a fantastic addition to all homes with young children. The truth's that are taught in each book are timeless and even older children will enjoy the lessons taught throughout each book. Little Cub is just like any child, asking many questions and he knows, just as our children do, that wise adults can answer them. Although tough questions are asked in each book, the answers given are very easy for children ages 3-7 (which the books are designed for) to understand.
The illustrations are beautiful, soft colored and engaging and caught the attention of both my 2.5 year old and 4 year old. In fact my youngest sat through the books with full attention. I know that these books will be read and looked at for a long time to come in our home.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
