FIRST WildCard Tour God Gave Us The World

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

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!
