Review: This is an adorable little board book! I haven't seen the first two books in the series, but I am definitely going to be looking for them to add them to my grandchildren's library.

The bear family in this series, as you can tell from the cover, is not a typical one where all the bears look the same. That makes this a great book for adoptive families, as well as for traditional families, as it also looks at how the cubs vary in personality traits. The main theme of the story is that all three cubs are loved unconditionally by their parents and grandparents, as well as by one another.

The illustrations are adorable and not too "busy," with just enough detail to show what the text is saying. Each page contains a scripture verse that relates to the action on that page as well.

The fact that it's a very durable board book makes it a good choice for toddlers, and it should last long enough for them to grow into reading it on their own as well.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Five stars
