God Gave Us Two {Review}

God Gave Us Two
by Lisa T. Bergren

About 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!”
The winsome sequel to God Gave Us You, God Gave Us Two playfully affirms a child’s uniqueness and place in the family and helps little ones accept, appreciate, and love their new siblings.

My Thoughts
Definitely a cute story that was nice to be able to share with Emma--no stranger to the "new sibling" process.  The illustrations were well done and overall I enjoyed the read.  Spoiler alert, but one issue I did have with the book is that it's called God Gave Us Two--assuming one for the first sibling plus one for the soon to come sibling.  But really, it's twins.  So I guess the title still works in that God is giving the family two MORE.  I can just foresee some confusion with a little one who is only welcoming one new sibling into the family.  Otherwise, I was more than happy with the read.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
