MY REVIEW-This book has an appeal just from looking at the cover. I also know the author's work so I knew it going to be a book I would love to review! Lisa Bergren has written several of these books aimed at young children. I think we need more books like this for them! It is about a little bear cub and he finds out how God made all of us and put us in different places around the world. Even though we may look different and have different characteristics, we all were made by God. I really like the pictures in this. Very beautiful and any child will love it!
