What I'm Reading

God Gave Us Two
by Lisa Tawn Bergren
God Gave Us Two is a children’s book meant to help the first child in a family understand why his/her parents are having a second child. I like the idea of having books around to help my own first child handle the uncertainties that come with a new baby on the way, but I didn’t necessarily like how this book went about it. The main character brought up a lot of insecurities and worries which may come with having a new sibling join the family, but I feel it would be more productive to just focus on all the joys of a new baby rather than addressing all of the possible negative feelings. I also thought the wording was just plain awkward in many places. I did really enjoy the beautiful illustrations the book had to offer though.

***I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review

  1. Good review. I rated your review on the publisher's website, and I was wondering if you could rate some of mine?
