Another very important aspect addressed in this wonderful book is the power of the Lord, in which He commands the water to freeze and glaciers to melt.
Many books do not question the importance of Santa Claus during the holiday season, however, "God Gave Us Christmas," does just that. By showing children that Santa is just an aspect of Christmas, helping to show generosity, the child is able to learn that the Savior Jesus Christ is the true meaning of Christmas. As a Christian parent that worries about my children confusing the commercialism of Christmas as the true meaning of the holiday, this important aspect of the story is welcoming.
In this book, the little cub is grateful for her mother's teaching of God. Every parent should be willing and happy to share the love of God and teach their children about the gift of salvation. Now their is this great book that allows us to do that. I encourage parents of young children, especially while in the midst of the Christmas season, to pick up this book, read it to your children and remind them of its many lessons.
