When a charming polar bear cub climbs into bed one night, she asks her mama a very important question–one that little “human cubs” often wonder about too: “Where did I come from?”

As Mama Bear tucks her young cub under the quilts, she gently, tenderly, and reassuringly communicates the message loving parents everywhere (bears and non-bears alike) want their little ones to hear: “We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because…”God gave us you.”

Perfect for bedtime, naptime, storytime, or anytime, God Gave Us You provides a valuable opportunity to build children’s self-esteem every day and assure each one that he or she truly is a welcomed, precious, and treasured gift from above.

What a sweet, sweet story June 3, 2002
By “bateslj”
Format:HardcoverMy husband and I love to read this book to our daughter who is 6 months old (we have read it to her since she was in my belly) It is such a sweet story about a mommy bear and a baby girl bear. The story tells the baby what a blessing she is to her mommy and daddy and how God had given her to them.

Beautiful story! February 26, 2002
By A. Stephens
Format:HardcoverThis book is a beautiful way of explaining where baby comes from without giving an adult answer. The simple message that your child was a gift from God sums it up, and in a sweet story. The illustrations are soothing, and the story is a good bedtime read.

Where do babies come from? May 15, 2001
By Jacki Whipple
Format:HardcoverFROM GOD… of course!!! This book is just perfect… it is a very cute story of how a baby gets from heaven to the family… a small child (polar bear) is asking her mama where she came from and the reply is “God gave us you”… this goes from conception to birth without all the messy details that little ones just won’t get, and You probably aren’t ready to give… but it will apease the child for quite some time… also, the illustrations are just adorable…
