God Gave Us Christmas
Book Description: In God Gave Us Christmas, as Little Cub and her family prepare to celebrate the most special day of the year, the curious young polar bear has something on her mind: “Who invented Christmas?” she asks. “Is God more important than Santa?”
Her questions reflect the confusion of so many children during the holiday season. And this heartwarming story takes them on a wonderful journey of discovery—right to the heart of Christmas.
Through Mama’s gentle guidance, Little Cub learns that God loves her and everyone— polar bear, moose, or human—so much that he gave us Jesus, the very best gift of all.
Little Cub is excited about Christmas and when Mama mentions God, little cub asks the type of questions our own children would ask about God, Jesus, and Santa. Mama Bear and Little Cub set out for the mountains to learn about God and His gift to us. Mama Bear teaches Little Cub about God by using God’s masterful creation surrounding them. With the beautiful artwork and gentle teachings, this book is a perfection in its simplicity. Who could resist the cute smiling bears! More importantly, is the clear message of God’s gift of Jesus as the real meaning of Christmas. Santa is given the lower position of a reminder of Christ’s love. This would be a wonderful gift book for children, Sunday School classes, church nurseries, or day care groups.
