Little Cub is stunned to hear her father say that Easter is even better than Christmas. On a walk, Papa Bear uses an Easter egg, an uprooted tree, and evidence of new life in a pinecone to tell the Easter story: how Jesus was the root of Jesse who came to die and to rise again so that we would have the chance to go to heaven, where we will see Him face-to-face. Covering doctrines like sin, prayer, and heaven in simple language that children can understand, Bergren adds another lovely title to her “God Gave Us” series. Once again beautifully illustrated by Bryant in watercolors and colored pencil, the Arctic home of these polar bears seems warm and inviting, both indoors and out. This small volume will make a wonderful gift for Easter baskets as well as to put on library shelves. Preschool-Grade 1. –Melissa Moore

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.
