A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

ELCLOUD THOUGHTS:


I really love Lisa Tawn Bergren's God Gave Us books.  I love the polar bear family, and I love the way she writes about God.   My children have also enjoyed Lisa's previous God Gave Us books and were excited when this one arrived in the mail.  The artwork was beautiful, as always.  We read it, and were not disappointed.    My 2 year old, 4 year old and 6 year old all snuggle up to listen to God Gave Us The World.   It will be a favorite bed-time story book for years to come.
