I started Blogging for Books, I receive my first free book to review. You can go rate my review there http://waterbrookmultnomah.com/bloggingforbooks/reviews/view/3636, give me a 5 star if you're my best friend :))))
So, here we go...
It is called "God gave us the world", by Lisa Taw Bergen and Laura J. Bryant.
Here is my review:
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for review two weeks ago. I first glanced through the book when I received it. It has a lot of pictures, very colorful and very cute. What a great choice: who doesn't like a cuddly white bear! I started reading it to my 2 year old, who sat through the whole book, quite amazingly. My 5 year old came after a couple of minutes. We read it again the night after and I think it will be one of our fave. I liked the fact that it had main focuses that little ones can grasp: God made us different and He gave us the world. However, I think it would've been better to focus on one of these topics instead of both. It's a lot to understand for such a young age. He made us different, one book. He gave us the world, another book. The other thing that would have been a bit better was the capitalization of the letter H when referring to God, "He", I think it would have been a nice touch. Even if the wee ones cannot read it, the parents can. I think that the "H" makes it stand out, and makes it clear of who or Who we are referring to.
The pictures were cute, and gave a lot more to discuss with the kids. It's a book that can be read again and again, and has great values, of course.
