These are comforting & inspiriting titles that we know your little ones will love. They’re perfect for those holiday stocking stuffers as well.

It’s perfect for settling kids down at night & setting them up for a good night’s sleep, knowing they are safe in the hands of The Lord.

The illustrations by Steve Whitlow are adorable & the text is perfect for reading aloud & is written in such a way that older children can read it to their brothers & sisters as well.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”2_3″ last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren & Laura J. Bryant is another lovely read aloud for young children. The gentle illustrations are similar to those in Bless You and Good Night, with baby animals being cuddled by their parents, but this time the story is just about a polar bear cub.

It answers that question beloved of young children, “Where did I come from?” with the reassurance, “We wanted you very, very much, and we are so very glad because—God gave us you.” What answer could be better?

The story is touching & sweet, as you would expect. It bolsters the child’s self-esteem in the best possible way. So, if you’re looking for a good story for the little ones, & maybe a way out of those more awkward questions, this is a book worth looking into.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”bottomshadow” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”#0a0a0a” bordersize=”1px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”bottomshadow” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”#0a0a0a” bordersize=”1px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”2_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]Just In Case You Ever Wonder is by Pastor Max Lucado who has a way to express the love of parents for their children & the love of God for us all in a way that is unique & touching.

In this story, he tells of a father’s love… so many of these types of books are centered on the mother that we found it refreshing to have one from the father’s point of view. The message that you will always be there for them & that they are loved comes through very clearly.

We’re not as thrilled with the illustrations in this book as with the other two, but the message is too good to pass up.

It is a board book (also available in hardcover & Kindle) suitable for young children.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
