Let There Be Light
by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
illustrated by Nancy Tillman
published by Zonderkidz
“In the very beginning, God’s love bubbled over when there was nothing else—no trees, no birds, no animals, no sky, no sea—only darkness.”
Let There Be Light combines the love and warmth of Nobel Peace Prize Winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu with the extraordinary talents of bestselling author and illustrator Nancy Tillman. This retelling of the biblical story of creation vividly portrays the wonder and beauty of God’s creation on each of the seven days. Using Archbishop Tutu’s lyrical text from the Children of God Storybook Bible and Tillman’s remarkable illustrations, Let There Be Light brings the story of creation to life for readers young and old.
My Two Cents
I honestly didn't think that I would adore this book like I do! I don't especially love the cover, but the illustrations within the book are wonderful. Tutu tells, with perfect wording, about the joy God took in creation. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be gifting it for sure!
