A delightful illustrated picture book for readers ages 3 and up, God Gave Us Easter features the adorable polar bear Little Cub, talking with her father and learning about God's design for the Easter season and what it really means.
"God loved us so much he wanted us to always be with him too. That’s why God knew he’d need to give us Easter.”
As Little Cub celebrates Easter with Papa, Mama, and her brother and sister, she begins to ask her papa questions about this very special day of the year. Papa lovingly explains God’s plans for his children, while taking Little Cub on a memorable walk through her stunning Arctic world, and he shares how Easter came about in clear, simple terms that even the littlest cubs can understand.

“I love Easter,” Little Cub said.
“Me too,” Papa Bear said. “It’s even better than Christmas.”
“Better than Christmas? Why?”
“Because on Christmas, we celebrate Jesus’ birthday. But on Easter, we remember we get to be with him forever.”
“Forever. That’s why God gave us Easter.”
