A really cute book.
A young polar bear asks her grandpa why we must love others, even the unlovable, when some otters disturb their quiet fishing trip. Grandpa tells her; "Anytime we show love, Little Cub, we're sharing a bit of His love."
This little book was cute. My daughter really liked it. It tells a story and demonstrates how we are a treasured gift from God. It also lets us know that we are to share the love that God gave us with others even if we don't think they deserve it.
There is not much else to say about this book without writing down the whole story for you. The story was written so that the young can understand it. the illustrations are colorful and attractive.
One part I found hit home for me was when little cub tells her grandpa; "I love the otters. I just don't like them right now." There are many times we all feel that same way with the people in our lives.
We are to love everyone all the time. Even when it is difficult for us to do so. God gave us all kinds of love, such as the love between friends, spouses and siblings. But the greatest love He gave was from Himself. He gave us the sacrifice of His son, Jesus, so that we will never be separated from His love once we chose His gift to us.
I received this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers and was not required to write a positive review.
