“Little Cub!” Mama called. “Time for bed.”
Little Cub is having so much fun building an igloo with her friends that she doesn’t want to stop for bedtime! Who needs sleep when there’s fun to be had? Mama patiently answers her child’s questions as she puts her to bed, explaining the importance of daily rhythms of work, play, and rest. As they talk through the fears that come with nighttime—and work through Little Cub’s endless stalling tactics—our favorite bear learns to realize that God gave us sleep as a vital gift.
“God gave us rest so we have energy for our day, and patience to enjoy it. And so we have quiet time to listen to him.”
This charming addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, with its Arctic characters and relevant message, will help all little ones prepare for a peaceful night’s rest.
I just love this series that Lisa Tawn Bergren does. My daughter has all but one book from it and they are much loved in this house. The illustrations are just so adorable and I love the way she uses the cubs to teach our children about God and the importance of different things. When ever I see there is another one coming up I can't wait to get it.
In this particular book Lisa Tawn Bergren uses the cubs to teach us about the importance of rest and and routine. Kids love to play and not many want to take the time to sleep if they had their way but this book helps them learn why we need it and that it is a good thing. We need rest so we can have energy, be in good moods and more imporant be able to follow what God's wants for us.
Fans of the God Gave Us series will love this edition and those that have never read them should check it out. This book makes a great edition to any childs library.
