If you have a toddler and are expecting a new baby, reading God Gave Us Two might help prepare your older child for the new arrival. Lisa Tawn Bergren writes how Mama and Papa polar bear explain to Little Cub that she will be a big sister to a new baby soon. In words appropriate for children aged 2-5, the parents reiterate to Little Cub that God’s blessing the family with another cub won’t replace the love they have for her.
The phrase “God gave us you, now he’s given us two” is sprinkled throughout the delightful artwork by Laura J. Bryant to reassure Little Cub that there’s enough love to go around for the whole Bear family. Any child soon to welcome a new brother or sister will delight in the story between these few pages, but if you’re carrying twins, you’ll appreciate the surprise ending.
