God Gave Us Easterby Lisa Tawn Bergren
Synopses & Reviews
"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.
"Little Cub and her polar bear family are back, in this Easter-themed addition to the God Gave Us You series. The bear and her father go for a woodland walk as Papa explains the meaning of Easter ('Out of death comes life. That's how God wants us to see Easter'). The bears' wintry climate is hardly a typical setting for a discussion of Easter, but the idea of Jesus 'whispering' in Little Cub's heart is evocative and imaginative ('To hear Jesus, it takes a special kind of listening,' her father tells her). Bryant's predominantly blue-and-white palette is remarkably varied, and underneath Bergren's simple story about animals lays sophisticated theology about God's intentions. Ages 3 — 7."
