The beloved “God Gave Us”
series, written by Lisa Tawn
Bergren and illustrated by
Laura J. Bryant, has given
children around the world comforting
descriptions of parental,
sibling and divine love. In God
Gave Us Easter
Press), the familiar polar bears
return for another story of
God’s love. “As a parent,” Lisa
says, “I wanted to bring the
focus back to Jesus, versus the
Easter Bunny and candy!”
She adds that writing the
book was a challenge. “My deepest
hope is that I hit the mark of
beginning to help our youngest
brothers and sisters understand
why Jesus died, how He
rose again, and how that ultimately
gives us hope and the
best reason to smile, too.”
