December 11

God Gave Us Christmas
by Lisa Tawn Bergren
illustrated by David Hohn

When Little Cub asks who invented Christmas, Mama suggests a journey to find God because "Santa is hard to find … (but) God is everywhere." Through the wonders of the Northern Lights, glaciers, and unexpected natural wonders, Mama tenderly shows Little Cub God at work. This book also gently addresses a child's questions about Santa: "Santa Claus reminds us about many good things like generosity and care. But it is God and Jesus that we celebrate most come Christmas."
