God Gave Us Sleep
Written by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Illustrated by Laura J. Bryant
“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.

God Gave Us Sleep by Lisa Tawn Bergren is so adorable! My kids and I absolutely love this darling book. One of the reasons my kids love this book so much is because they can relate to Little Cub. Little Cub doesn't want to stop playing for bedtime, much like my kiddos. Little Cub and Mama Bear talk through fears that come with nighttime and work through Little Cub’s endless stalling tactics. I go through these very same stalling tactics with my little ones night after night. With Mama Bears help Little Cub comes to realize that God gave us sleep as a vital gift. I love that part because my kids immediately got it and agreed it was time for bed so that they could be rested and ready for another day. The illustrations are beautiful and the book is very well written. This is an absolutely perfect book for bedtime!
