God Gave Us Angels by Lisa Tawn Bergren – art by Laura J. Bryant

ISBN13: 9781601426611
About the book: “What do angels do all day, Papa?”

When Papa finds Little Cub looking for angels, it gives him a chance to tell his beloved child about those that may be in their midst, even when they can’t be seen.  Exploring their exhilarating Arctic world as they talk, Papa lovingly answers all of Little Cub’s questions about angels—and as usual, she has a lot. She wants to know what they do, how they look, how they guard God’s loved ones, and best of all, how they serve the Creator of the world.  

"God really created angels to serve him more than us, Little Cub. They love him and would do anything for him.” 

This uplifting tale will encourage young hearts by exploring the glory and design of God’s messengers, while turning toward him with praise.  

Review: This is a very sweet book with beautiful illustrations.  This the first book I have read by Lisa Tawn Bergren, but I will be looking for her other books to purchase for my family.  She has written over 40 books, with many of them be the same type of thought…”God Gave us”.  I enjoyed the way she had the little cub asking questions about angels and the Dad being able to answer those same questions in a biblical way.

The story talks about how there are angels all around us and how they watch over us and love us, but that God loves us more because He created us and the angels.

The target age for the book 3-7 years of age or preschool to 2nd grade.  The text is written in such fashion that a 1st or 2nd grader who is a strong reader can read the book alone.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading the this book and look forward to sharing it with my grandchildren. (rev. P.Howard)
