Product Description

ECPA BESTSELLER • Over one million copies sold! As Little Cub and her family prepare to celebrate the most special day of the year, the curious young polar bear begins to wonder . . .

“Who invented Christmas?”

Mama’s answer only leads to more questions like “Is God more important than Santa?” So she and Little Cub head off on a polar expedition to find God and to see how he gave them Christmas. Along the way, they find signs that God is at work all around them. Through Mama’s gentle guidance, Little Cub learns about the very first Christmas and discovers that Jesus is the best present of all.

This enchanting tale provides the perfect opportunity to help young children celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and to discover how very much God loves them.

A Beautiful story that includes both Santa and Jesus. My husband and I are Christians, and really want our daughter to grow up knowing the true meaning of Christmas, but we also want her to have the fun of Santa Claus; this book is really perfect for our family values. It is such a sweet story about God being everywhere and giving us wonderful gifts. I love this book, and it is going to be part of our Christmas tradition for many years.

Best summary explanation of how God gave us Christmas I’ve seen.

This is the best explanation of God & Christmas that I’ve ever read in a children’s book or movie. Mama takes Little Cub around to different sights & explains to him how God is at work and/or how it demonstrates God’s presence and love for us, & explains why God gave us Jesus. While looking at the Northern Lights, Mama explains, “He sent His only Son as a baby so that we would know light from dark. Jesus is the Light of the World. Jesus is how God gave us Christmas.” In response to Little Cub’s astonishment that Jesus came to us as a baby, Mama says, “All kings begin as babies. God knew we would need someone we could touch and see and smell... to understand just how much He loved each one of us.” There are several explanations of how God gave us Christmas and who & what exactly Jesus was to us (the Light of the World, King of all Kings, the Bright Morning Star, & the best present of all).

Anyone at any level of their “Christian commitment” (in other words, from the “I believe in Jesus, but never go to church” type to the daily attendant type) would enjoy reading this book with their child. It would also be a good read for Sunday School. Now that I think about it, I need to see if this author did any more special occasions, like Easter!

Misspelled words and full of baby-talk -- we found it insulting and annoying

Before buying this, people should know that it''s full of baby-talk and misspelled words that are supposed to be cute (and apparently a lot of people like this type of thing since the reviews are mainly positive). I won''t read it to my child, but everyone can make their own decision. For us, it was written in a way that was insulting to children and talked down to them. The content isn''t a problem, it''s just the style of writing, so this book isn''t terrible, it''s just not for us (at all).

If you''re okay with baby-talk and words that are spelled incorrectly to mimic how children talk, then you''ll be okay with this book. If you find that sort of thing annoying and improper, you should avoid it.

Brings Focus To Jesus
Reviewed in the United States on December 2, 2020
Beautifully illustrated. I was a little wary at first when the bears went looking for God in nature (venturing into nature is god), but the story brought it back to how nature points to God and His characteristics, or that we''re seeing God at work when we look at nature.... See more
Beautifully illustrated. I was a little wary at first when the bears went looking for God in nature (venturing into nature is god), but the story brought it back to how nature points to God and His characteristics, or that we''re seeing God at work when we look at nature. It''s a good way of giving younger kids a way to grasp the concept of God when they don''t have much abstract thinking yet. The book also addressed Santa without negating him while bringing the focus back to Jesus.

A nice story to help children see the link between Christmas

A nice story to help children see the link between Christmas, Jesus, God and Santa. A little too much for my 2.5 year old, so more recommended for 3 and up

This book is far too long and the concepts too complex for it''s intended audience. I am an early childhood teacher with 40 years of experience, and while it appears to be a book for a preschool aged child, the contents are too complex. They started out ok, but kind of lost their way in carrying the book contents too far, trying to explain how God and Santa can exist together harmoniously for Christmas, etc. It might work for older kids conceptually, 6-8 years, but they are giving up on Santa around then anyway, and the Mama and Little Bear format is too juvenile past Kindergarten in my opinion.

My kids like the illustrations
Reviewed in the United States on October 22, 2017
A cute book about Christmas. My kids like the illustrations, but don''t like sitting through the entire book even though they love books. We keep this one packed away with our Christmas stuff in hopes that the "newness" every year keeps the kids interested.
