God Gave Us Family - Book Review

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.


God Gave Us Family is an enjoyable book written by Lisa Tawn Bergren with beautiful illustrations by David Hohn. This story is about a little wolf pup who is looking forward to an upcoming family reunion, filled with all kinds of activities ranging from roasting marshmallows, playing with cousins, and engaging in new games. Along the way, he learns how there are many families in the world, each one is different and fulfilled in their own way. Some are big, some are small, there might be a lot of siblings or just one only child;. Some are raised by their grandparents and some are adopted, no matter what makes up a family, each one is made very special. 

I love this sweet story and the family closeness it brings. It made me think of my little family, because my son is an only child, not by choice, though he claims to love it. He see's all the different ways our family is connected. It's not about who's being raised by who, or how many children there are, or whether someone is adopted or "matches" in this way or that. It's about the love between each of us and the connection we build together. That's what having a family is about, all the things we feel on the inside!


This is a great book to read with your little ones. They will enjoy seeing the illustrations of each animal family and learning about the differences and how each person makes our family a whole. You can find God Gave Us Family available for purchase on Amazon for under $10.
