Let There Be Light by Archbishop Demond Tutu ~ Review
This was a beautiful picture book which grandparents should purchase for their grand kids and read to them as I have always considered books to be great gifts to give. A book that is beautifully written, beautifully illustrated, and just an over all treasure. I have recently found such a book. Often I find a book that is well written but pictures are dull, not this one! It will indeed find itself in a grandmas hands soon to read to her grandson and granddaughter!
This is a beautifully illustrated picture book for children telling the story of creation through its whimsical and almost magical illustrations. The colors are vibrant and the text on each page is short, which allows the children to really enjoy the pictures. The story chronicles Genesis 1 fairly accurately, with the artist's illustrations perhaps a bit simplistic, but beautiful nonetheless. My children truly enjoyed looking at the pictures.
The only fault I could find with the book was that instead of Adam and Eve on the sixth day, just "people" were created and the illustration shows a group of children. This is not scriptural.
Do read today!
