Blogging For Books- God Gave Us So Much Review

I was thrilled to join the Multnomah Publishers blogging for books program a week ago.  I was shocked at how fast they sent me my first selection!  Here is my review;

Book Information:  God Gave Us So Much: A Limited-Edition Three-Book Treasury by Lisa T. Bergren and Laura J. Bryant (Hardcover - Aug 10, 2010)

Product Details (From Amazon):
  • Reading level: Ages 4-8
  • Hardcover: 112 pages
  • Publisher: WaterBrook Press; 1 edition (August 10, 2010)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0307446298
  • ISBN-13: 978-0307446299
Book Review:
God Gave us so Much combines three books in one: God Gave us the World, God Gave us Love, and God Gave us Heaven. Each book features Little Cub and her adventures as she learns about God by asking her Mama, Grandpa, and Papa questions.  Little Cub has lots of questions.  Her little mind wonders about differences, different types of love and everlasting life.


Laura Bryant's artwork is beautiful and captivating.  From a language standpoint, I was able to use her illustrations to pose questions about basic concepts (propositions, basic concepts, 5Ws). Her illustrations are full of color and detail.


Lisa Tawn Bergren teaches important spiritual and life lessons throughout the book. The first book God Gave Us The World  is a touching story that teaches children to take care of the worldly gifts God has given to us.  In The Second, God Gave Us Love, we learn that God wants us to show everyone his love.  The annoying otter family provides a good concrete example of how God calls us to love others when they are not so lovable.  While there is no plot to the stories, there is a lovely dialogue that kept my daughter focused and hooked.  Some critics feel that plot is a missing element, but like the great works of Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle, these books serve to teach.  Concepts are beautifully presented and reinforced in many ways.  Lessons are taught in a beautiful way.   If you are looking for perfect grammar as a model for language development you will not find it here, but I think that is also an important lesson.  Little Cub does not use perfect standard American English.  My child can certainly relate to that.  This is another opportunity to teach that differences are ok. 

This book would make an amazing  gift and it easily provides an avenue for opening discussions about God, life, and morals. 


This book will be a permanent fixture on my daughter's book shelf!

A Primer In Price Matching- Target Edition


If you think Target coupon shopping is fun (I do! I do!), price matching will really make your frugal heart go pitter patter!! 

How to Do It:
  • Target will price match any product they sell if it appears in a print ad.
  • You have to bring the entire competitor's flyer with you. (one page or a clipped ad will not work).
  • The competitor must have a location within 50 miles of the Target you visit. 
  • DO NOT take the flyer and desired item to the regular check out. (Well you can, but only if you are asking for a miserable check out experience.  Coupon Chris does not embrace the whole concept and if he is anywhere in the front end he will be at the register butting around.)
  • Take the item and the ad to the customer service desk and request an adjustment.  Pay for the price matched items there, then checkout at the regular checkout if you have other items.
Ready for a rocking good deal?
  • Walgreen's is selling Rice Krispies for $1.99 each this week.
  • Grab your Wags flyer and head to target.
  • There is a Target coupon out for FREE Kraft or Market Pantry Marshmallows when you buy 2 Rice Krispies! Grab that at target.com (bottom of page under coupons)
  • Visit http://www.coupons.com/ to print a $2/2 Rice Krispie coupon.
  • Buy (2) Rice Krispies Cereal = $4 hand them both coupons.
  • Final Price = $2 for 2 Boxes of Cereal & 1 Bag of Marshmallows!
