God Gave Us Angels by Lisa Tawn Bergren: A Review


 
In God Gave Us Angels by Lisa Tawn Bergren, as always, Little Cub is full of questions--this time about angels.  What are they?  Where are they?  What do they do?  What is their purpose?  As always, Papa patiently answers each of her questions, while the two explore the glorious arctic landscape.
 
For example, Little Cub asks, "What do angels do all day, Papa?" 
 
To which Papa replies, "Angels live to serve God.  Whatever he wants them to do, they do.  And he loves us.  So sometimes they bring messages from him to us.  Other times they guard us or even fight for us.  And they're always worshipping God."
 
I liked this book.  As always, Laura J. Bryant's illustrations are beautiful, and the text is engaging and easy to understand.  God Gave Us Angels is a great addition to the God Gave Us series, following the same question and answer format as the rest of the books.  I love this format, because it's so true to life.  Children ask questions, and while Papa Bear always seems to know the answers, I don't.  These books are a great resource to spark discussion of spiritual things with young children.
 
Bottom line: This is a great starting point to help answer your own child's questions about God and angels.
 
I received this book for free through Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review.
