God Gave Us Two - Review

A Children's Book Review
God Gave Us Two 
By: Lisa Tawn Bergren 
Art By: Laura J. Bryant

From the Back of the Book: 
Now that Mama Polar Bear has another baby in her tummy, little cub is bursting with curiosity.  "why do we need a new baby?" she asks.  "if we don't like the new baby, can we send it back?"  "Will you forget me when the new baby comes?"  Gently and lovingly, Mama and Papa assure their firstborn that the new baby is a gift from God they want very much, just as little cub was- and still is.  "God gave us you, Now he's given us two!" 

My Thoughts: 
I love this book.  I think this is a book that every big sister or brother needs to help them get ready for a new baby.  I love the line that is repeated to Little Cub over and over in the story- "God gave us you.  Now he's given us two."  The pictures in the story are precious.  I love the blue and purple hues found on most of the pages.  This is one book I will be putting away in case baby bug ever becomes a big sister.  I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!! 

Disclaimer: I did receive a review copy of this book for review purposes.  The opinions in this story are my own and are not influenced by the company. 


  1. What a cute book! This would be great for my friends son who isn't a happy camper about becoming a big brother.

  2. This would have been great for my eldest when we welcomed our little one. Looks so cute. :)

  3. This looks like such a cute book! I wish I had this when I was pregnant with Amberly!

  4. I love books with blue and purple too, the two colours just go together so well and make the illustrations pop!
