I Love You Just Because: Book Review and Giveaway

I cherish the times I get to read with our girls. I am fortunate that they love books as much as we do. I can't live without a book. Tablets and readers are all great but  I always find myself with a good 'ole piece of book.

Any chance given to us to instill teaching moments and to explain some topics that they find confusing , whether will it be through an experience or an acquaintance and in this case a book, we will take it. We always explain to our kids that some families are different than ours and that is totally okay! Just like we once explained to them that mommy is from Philippines and dad is from here in United States. We are an interracial couple, who saw past outward differences. They find it amusing that mom talks two different languages. That's what make us beautifully different, we are an interracial family. God had perfectly put us together. His plan and His timing is always perfect.


    Some kids are not born from their loving parents. They have "birth mothers" and God had placed them into their perfect loving parents. They may look different in the outside but it is the same unconditional love that ties them as a family.  This book also puts emphasis on how love is not earned, just like how God's love and grace for us is not earned.  How I love when the bear siblings helped each other. It is one thing that we always teach our girls, to be there for each other. Regardless of their differences,  strengths and weakness.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Through 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. With playful artwork and the same friendly bear family you already know and love from Donna Keith's first two books—I Love You All the Same and I Love You Even When—the sweet story of this book will touch you and your family and will remind you that family members love each other...just because.
Parents will gravitate toward the felt need and fun messaging of this book as it seeks to help them explain to their little ones that they are truly loved just because.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

I love you Just Because, along with Donna Keith's first two books, were inspired by her oldest daughter's interracial family, but it was Donna's youngest brother who gave her the idea to write about three different bear cubs living together in one family.
