The newest installment in the God Gave Us series finds Little Cub struggling with a common challenge for young children: understanding the importance of a good night's rest.
Little Cub is playing with friends and is called in for bedtime, but she doesn't want to stop playing. Her mother tells her about God's design for rest, for giving us energy, and how God wants us to have a good night's sleep. Little Cub struggles that night with a busy mind (not nightmares, just excited about building the snow fort) and the next day she is very tired and cranky. Mama talks to her about the rhythm of rest, work, and play God has designed for us. The next night Little Cub gets good rest, has good dreams and wakes up refreshed.
:"Little Cub!" Mama called. "Time for bed."
Little Cub is having so much fun building an igloo with her friends that she doesn't want to stop for bedtime! Who needs sleep when there's fun to be had? Mama patiently answers her child's questions as she puts her to bed, explaining the importance of daily rhythms of work, play, and rest. As they talk through the fears that come with nighttime-and work through Little Cub's endless stalling tactics-our favorite bear learns to realize that God gave us sleep as a vital gift.
"God gave us rest so we have energy for our day, and patience to enjoy it. And so we have quiet time to listen to him."
This charming addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, with its Arctic characters and relevant message, will help all little ones prepare for a peaceful night's rest.
