The book that is up for grabs is I Love You Just Because by Donna Keith. It is a faith-based book that tells children they are loved no matter what. Three different bear siblings are featured: a polar bear, a brown bear, and a panda bear. The bears consider how they are different from one another — for example, the little panda wants bamboo instead of fish for supper — but each bear is reassured that love does not have to be earned. They are loved just because. I think this book would be wonderful for a family with adopted children, but I also like it for my son because I think it’s good to start teaching children young that people can come from different cultural backgrounds. I also want to express to him that I will always love him no matter what. My son, Carson, especially likes the part when the bears go fishing together. The picture at the top of the post shows my son’s “reading rocker.” The rocker is an antique from my parents’ attic, and my mom put Carson’s name on it with wooden craft letters that we painted to match the rocker. As soon as the book came in the mail, Carson sat down in the reading rocker and wanted to re-read it three times together.
