“What do angels do all day, Papa?”
 
When Papa finds Little Cub looking for angels, it gives him a chance to tell his beloved child about those that may be in their midst, even when they can’t be seen.  Exploring their exhilarating Arctic world as they talk, Papa lovingly answers all of Little Cub’s questions about angels—and as usual, she has a lot. She wants to know what they do, how they look, how they guard God’s loved ones, and best of all, how they serve the Creator of the world. 
 
“God really created angels to serve him more than us, Little Cub.
They love him and would do anything for him.”
 
This uplifting tale will encourage young hearts by exploring the glory and design of God’s messengers, while turning toward him with praise.

Polar bears Papa and Little Cub have an important talk about angels—who and where they are, what they do, and what role they play in our lives—as they explore their Arctic habitat. Angels pass along messages from God, serve God, sing and watch over all of us. In this latest in the God Gave Us series, Little Cub's questions and comments are spot-on for a curious child. When Papa tells her that angels serve God and are always worshipping Him, Little Cub asks, "Does all that worshipin' give them those halo thingies?" Papa's answers are appropriate for Little Cub's age, and he does not answer every query concretely—he isn't sure why God doesn't send angels to keep us from every hurt and sickness. Papa's comment that we should be nice to all we meet as they may be angels in disguise nicely brings angels down to Earth and gives children a mission. Bryant's soft watercolor illustrations show the tender love the father and daughter polar bears share. Many spreads depict an angel watching over the pair—behind a snowy hill, within a waterfall, in the shape of a cloud, flying in the night sky. Though not all Papa's answers will satisfy those of every Christian denomination, the Bible basics are here, and adults can tweak the text to suit the faith they want to pass on to their own lap-sitters.

Read an Excerpt

"What are you doing up here, Little Cub?" Papa Bear asked.

"Lookin’ for angels," she said in a hushed voice. "The bunnies said they’re all around us."

"Ahhh," Papa said. "Did you see any?"

"Not yet. But Mama says they’re hard to find. They’re imbisible."

"Most of the time, they are invisible. But not always."

"Have you ever seen one?" Little Cub asked. "I mean, for reals?"

"I haven’t, but I agree with the bunnies. They’re often with us."

"Are some here now?" she whispered.

"Maybe," he whispered back.

God Gave Us Angels is the latest installment in the God Gave Us series by Lisa Tawn Bergren.  As with the other books in this series, Lisa uses a family of polar bears to help explain concepts to kids that are sometimes hard to understand. Paired with beautiful illustrations by Laura J. Bryant, this story answers questions such as “Will we become angels?” and “Should we pray to angels?” The author does a great job of tackling this tough subject with answers that kids can understand in a way that is fun and makes them want to read more about Papa and Little Cub.  My kids have been fans of the God Gave Us books for the last few years, they’re now 7 and 9, but they still enjoy reading them…and so do I. :) Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review.
