God Gave Us Sleep
I was so excited to get this book to read to my boys. They are 5 and 7 and they loved it. There are many times that kids do not, I repeat, DO NOT want to listen to their parents. I am sure that I am just starting to get my taste of it. This book covers the story of a little polar bear cub who doesn't understand that rest is part of our day. My boys are the same... they do not want to go to sleep and then wake up upset, just like this little cub when they don't get enough. But this book seemed to break through to them. They notice how their days go wrong, as if they woke up on the wrong side of the bed so to speak, if they don't rest enough.
I love this book and am going to get it for a friend to welcome her new baby. I would love to get more of these books from the series. For our family having books that speak God's wisdom to us is very important and I am thankful for books like this which help us guide our children.
** I was given this book for FREE as part of the Blogging for Books program.
