Lisa T. Bergren's God Gave Us Heaven ~ Reviewed

God Gave Us Heaven
By Lisa T. Bergren
WaterBrook Press
ISBN 978-1-4000-7446-4


As the sun rises on her snow-covered world, Little Cub wonders aloud…

“What is heaven like?”

With tender words, her Papa describes a wonderful place, free of sadness and tears, where God warmly welcomes his loved ones after their life on earth is over. Little Cub and Papa spend the day wandering their beautiful, invigorating arctic world while she asks all about God’s home: How do we get to heaven? Will we eat there? Will I get to see you in heaven? Papa patiently answers each question, assuring her that…

“Heaven will be full of everything good.”

This gentle story provides satisfying answers for a young child’s most difficult questions about what happens after this life, inviting “little cubs” to find comfort in knowing that God Gave Us Heaven.


This book is about a cute little girl polar bear who is asking her dad questions about heaven. I liked the pictures a lot. I especially like how the picture of the bridge crossing the canyon helps me understand the dad’s answer about how we get to heaven.
