I Love You Just Because Children's Book {Review and Giveaway}

We had the great opportunity to receive the new children's book I Love You Just Because by Donna Keith, thanks to FlyBy Promotions. 

About the book:

In this cute padded board book, a family of 5 bears goes through their day, from rising in the morning, to going to sleep at night. The cubs are constantly reminded of their parent's unconditional love for them. Whether they wake early or sleep in, whether they catch a lot of fish or just one, whether they like fish or bamboo, or other things that make them different, they know that their parents love them.

The book begins by sharing that these cubs were chosen by God for this family and they had been prayed for. So while it is obvious they look completely different, it is a reminder that families love each other, even if they are interracial or even adopted. The bear family in the book was inspired by the author's interracial family.

"Through the adorable, cuddly art and fun rhyming text, I Love You Just Because will help little ones understand their parents' love for them and that it doesn't have to be earned." This is the third book in this series by Donna Keith. The other books are: I Love You All the Same and I Love You Even When.

Each double-page spread shows the family in different activities, along with rhyming text and a Bible verse. 

Here are a couple of our favorite pages.

Aren't the illustrations sweet?

What we thought of the book:

This is a very sweet story about a family of bears that shares about God's love and the unconditional love of parents for their children. I enjoyed the story, though there are parts where the rhyming and rhythm doesn't quite work as well as I would like. I love that Bible verses are included, though I admit, there are times I don't quite get the connection between the verse and the text on the page. I still think it is a very sweet book, and one that I definitely recommend. It is so important for children to know they are loved...just because.

You can find this book on Amazon for $7.95.
