God Gave Us The World

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

My Thoughts
This is our third book from the author.   We already have God Gave Us Christmas and God Gave Us Love.   And I just love it. 

The day I received the book, I read it twice to the kids and they just loved the colourful pictures that accompany the story.

I love the creativity of the author which pictured the World through the eyes of a bear.   It is true that we are living in a very diversifying planet and that even though we are different, we are all made by the same Creator.   I personally thank God for the variety of food and the differences we have around the World.  Try imagining a World where everyone would be the same and we would eat all the same thing….   Scary isn’t it and boring.     I enjoy the diversity and discovering new taste when trying new food.

This book is another must-have in your personal library.    It will help your child to discover the world through new eyes.

God Gave Us the World is available through any bookstore near you, even
