God Gave Us Love

Juvenile Fiction/Board Book
The illustrations: I LOVE picture books and God Gave Us Love is full of beautiful art that captures your attention.
The text: I think the text is wordy for a board book. In this story, Grandpa polar bear explains to the little cub how God has given us all kinds of love. This is a huge concept that would be better understood by little listeners if the sentences were smaller. I also think it would be a better read-aloud with some rhyme and/or repetition.
