God Gave Us Two is a super-sweet book containing a dialogue between mother and child about the upcoming birth of a sibling. Young children are often curious and have many questions when their mommy is going to have another baby. God Gave Us Two is a book that would be a helpful tool for parents when addressing some of those questions.
In the book, a polar bear mom answers questions for “Little Cub” such a “Why do you need a new baby?” and “if we don’t like the new baby, can we send it back?” It also emphasizes what a wonderful privilege and task it will be to be a big sister. The strength of the book is it emphasis on God being the author of life and the One who gives this great gift of babies.
I am a huge fan of Lisa Bergren. I started buying her book when I started having babies. This book is actually one in a series of God Gave Us books. You can read my review of God Gave Us Christmas here.
I recommend this book for moms who are pregnant, and have older children who are curious about what is happening. The older sibling in the book is a girl, so it might be more appropriate for them. I also think this would be a great book to share about God being the one who gives us babies. If your child has questions like these about God, this is a perfect book to use as a teaching tool. *SPOILER WARNING* My highest recommendation for this book goes however to moms who might be carrying multiples. It has a nice little plot twist at the end and the mama polar bear gives birth to twins!!!
Many blessings to you on your journey through motherhood!
