Title: God Gave Us Sleep
Author: Lisa Tawn Bergren
About the Book: “‘Little Cub!” Mama called. “Time for bed.’
Little Cub is having so much fun building an igloo with her friends that she doesn’t want to stop for bedtime! Who needs sleep when there’s fun to be had? Mama patiently answers her child’s questions as she puts her to bed, explaining the importance of daily rhythms of work, play, and rest. As they talk through the fears that come with nighttime—and work through Little Cub’s endless stalling tactics—our favorite bear learns to realize that God gave us sleep as a vital gift.
This charming addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, with its Arctic characters and relevant message, will help all little ones prepare for a peaceful night’s rest.”
Review: God Gave Us Sleep was an enchanting book. It presented a number of thoughts on the importance of rest and the God-connect associated with it. I loved how the story injected some of the humourous examples of how cubs might try to get out of or rather delay going to bed. I could totally relate. ☺️ I also liked how the story translated experiences that littles might face, such as having bad dreams, dealing with emotions when tired, and the importance of prayer when facing a problem.
This book would be an ideal family read aloud selection. There is so much rich discussion material. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
