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 (WaterBrook 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.”
