“Good night, sweet child,” Mama said as she tucked Little Cub in.

But Little Cub wasn’t quite ready to go to sleep.

“Mama, where did I come from?” she asked.


“From God,” her mother answered. “Your papa and I were alone, and we wanted
a baby.”

“And you got me?” Little Cub asked, her voice muffled by the covers.

“Yes, my special child. God gave us you.”

 

 

 

MY REVIEW

I just love this sweet little book about a bear couple and their little cubbie bear, tucking the little one in the bed at night. This bear story explains to young children where they came from, that God gave them to their mommies and daddies. The book is a beautiful board book, with its blue background color blending so well with the other colors throughout the book. The illustrations are precious and adorable, telling the story through pictures as you read it to your child.

I highly recommend this book to families and couples with babies, or expecting a baby. What a perfect little book to read to your child, even before they are born!

I received this book free from the publisher, Waterbrook Press to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
