Children's Book ~ God Gave Us You {review & giveaway}

We spend a lot of time reading books in this house. Some of our favorite stories are read over and over again throughout the day or even the week. We find that reading is a great way to explore our imaginations and build important skills for the little ones at the same time.

We were recently sent an adorable board book for review. The title of this book is God Gave Us You {by Lisa Tawn Bergren} and it really could not have come at a better time for Alex and Eliana. Since we've received it, Alex has asked to hear the story again and again.

You see, I'm currently pregnant with our third child and Alex has a lot of questions about the pregnancy itself and wants to be reassured of his importance in this family. Reading God Gave Us You to him answers a lot of those questions and concerns and gives us a great opportunity to talk about some of the topics covered in this book.

Here's the book's synopsis:
"When a young polar bear cub climbs into bed one night, she asks her mama a very important question: 'Where did I come from?' As Mama Bear tucks her little one under the quilts, she lovingly explains, 'We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because...God Gave Us You.'"
This is such a beautiful book and I find that it really sends home the message to Alex that he's very wanted, loved, and special. He often asks to hear the story of his own time in mommy's tummy and how things went at the hospital. Following that, he will usually ask to hear about Eliana's story and wonder what's happening with the new baby in my tummy right now.

I love how this book shares how God answers prayer. I get to tell Alex and Eliana how much they are wanted and loved and how God chose them to be in our family. It's wonderful to have a book help me put some of those ideas into words that they can grasp and appreciate.

BUY IT: You can purchase God Gave Us You for $6.99.
