When sharing our faith with little ones, often there are certain concepts that can be difficult to explain. Lisa Tawn Bergren does such a wonderful job sharing Christian themes in her books. In the adorable story,God Gave Us Easter, Papa Bear shares the importance of Easter with Little Cub. Papa Bear tells Little Cub that Easter is even more important than Christmas.
"Because on Christmas, we celebrate Jesus' birthday. But on Easter, we remember we get to be with him forever."As Little Cub shares her excited about the Easter Bunny and treats, Papa Bear reminds her of the significance of Easter and that it is God who gave us Easter. My favorite part in the book is when papa bear shares an example of a newborn chick breaking out of an egg and compares it with how Jesus was in a tomb, but didn't stay dead.
I also adore the illustrations of the this sweet polar bear family created by Laura J. Bryant. I first discovered her work in the book- God Gave Us You.
My family truly enjoyed God Gave Us Easter. What a wonderful gift to share with our children on Easter morning!
