God Gave Us A Family By Lisa Bergren

Little Pup’s wolf family is on their way to a special reunion—with lots of cousins, games, roasting marshmallows, and fun! As the young wolf thinks about different kinds of families, it’s the perfect opportunity for Mama and Papa to teach their inquisitive child about the families that God brings together. Some families are big and others are small, some are led by grandparents or just one parent, and some families include adopted little ones– yet each family is truly special. 
Even the members of Little Pup’s pack make up an important role in his family, although they sometimes pester him. Papa gently reminds his son…
“We need to love the family God gave us.”
A heartwarming and colorful addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, this tale will delight young hearts and help them understand how families of all types reflect God’s unconditional love.

My Thoughts...

Are you a fan of Max Lucados Children's books?  If you said YES, Then you are going to like this one.
It's very easy to understand and short enough for the little ones to sit though it. 
Great message and the illustrations are done very well.
I might add that instead of toys under the tree this year, books like this one will have a lasting positive  effect on kids.
This was a very cute read. 
Love the family God gave you. Great message.
I gave this book 5 stars.
