A delightful illustrated picture book for readers ages 3 and up, God Gave Us Easter features the adorable polar bear Little Cub, talking with her father and learning about God's design for the Easter season and what it really means. "God loved us so much he wanted us to always be with him too. That’s why God knew he’d need to give us Easter.”  As Little Cub celebrates Easter with Papa, Mama, and her brother and sister, she begins to ask her papa questions about this very special day of the year.  Papa lovingly explains God’s plans for his children, while taking Little Cub on a memorable walk through her stunning Arctic world, and he shares how Easter came about in clear, simple terms that even the littlest cubs can understand.

Talk about God Gave Us Easter (God Gave Us Series)

I am definitely in the minority, but I did not love this book. I bought it for my boys, ages 4.5 and 2. It is a long story, but they love being read to. My biggest problem was NO mention of Jesus dying on the cross, why he died for us, and then his resurrection. It was disappointing. I would have returned it, but I would have gotten only a small refund after paying to send it back.
The illustrations were cute, but I thought this was going to be a children's version of Jesus's resurrection. The storyline was all over the place and at times I forgot that it was even about Easter at all. I would not recommend this book if you're looking for a good biblical based Easter explanation.
This is my third book by Ms. Bergren, and it did not disappoint. Through a family of polar bears, she gives us the story of Easter. She explains each of the secular parts of celebrating the holiday, and how it relates to the real meaning of the holiday - the resurrection of Christ and why that happened.Her illustrations are as lovely as they have been in her other books, and the polar bear parents explain love with great gentleness to their child.

I would recommend this book as well as God Gave Us Christmas, and God Gave Us You, for every family who wants to offer Christ based answers to very small children, using language that they will understand.
What a beautifully written book about the Easter story! We bought for our baby's first Easter but can see this being read year after year. Would be a great buy for all ages 0-10+... Would definitely recommend!
This is a great Easter book to explain to kids the significance of Easter and the true meaning behind it. The book says for 3+ years (I think it tech locally says 3-8 years) so I purchased for my soon-to-be 3-year-old and found the book to be too long and uses wording that is too complex for her to understand so I would recommend purchasing for a 4 or even 5-year-old at the minimum. That being said I certainly do NOT regret my purchase as my children will enjoy and understand it in years to come. The illustrations are sweet and well done. It is a larger book (see pic for size comparison next to hand) and is hard cover.
I love this story! It explains Easter in such an amazing way. I got it for my one year old. Definitely to advanced for him.. but it was a great book to read with the whole family. We look forward to getting others like it. :)
Excellent description of the Easter message. Appropriate for young children.. I bought it for two children ages three and seven.
I adore the “God gave us” series for my baby. We collect all of these books and love how they change the focus of each holiday to its actual meaning.
