I have been given the chance to review the book God Gave Us So Much. I have reviewed a variety of the books in the "God Gave Us" Series and must say that I love them each. They are a great reminder of what God has done and broken down into a simple version that even a 2 year old can understand.
God Gave Us So Much is a Limited Edition Treasurery that consists of three of the books from the series: God Gave us the World, God Gave Us Love, and God Gave Us Heaven. It also includes an attached ribbon to mark your place if reading to little ones.
The stories are all wrote from the perspective of little cub. She mainly asks a variety of questions in which the adult in the story always answers and explains how God has given us the things.
The illustrations are bright and cheery and the children enjoy looking at them. The 4 year old I read the story to took the book immediately after and re-told each story.
I really enjoyed the story God Gave Us Heaven. I feel that children do not always grasp the idea of heaven and what happens when a person dies. This story however explains it in a very simple manner that still keeps the gloriousness of Heaven alive. This book would be a great story to have around when having to help a child greive a loss or preparing them for a major loss in their lives.
Overall this book is a great asset to our collection.
