Book Nook: God Gave Us You

God Gave Us You, the bestselling book in the series, features a young polar bear asking its mama a very important question: “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 want their little ones to hear: “We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because—God gave us you”

I got a chance to review the personalized version of this from Put Me in the Story. Like other personalized books, only select pages are changed, but it's enough to make young readers really feel like the story is talking to them. What I liked about this book in particular is that it allows for questions about where babies come from, but isn't explicit, so it's appropriate for all ages. The only thing I didn't like is that there's no way for it to work for adopted families without some edited reading. It does make a great gift for young readers!
