Book Review Let There Be Light
Today I am reviewing for you a delightful children's book titled Let There Be Light, written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa and beautifully illustrated by Nancy Tillman.
To put it simply, the book tells the story of creation from Genesis, from day one when God said, "Let there be light," to day seven when God rested. A story that has been told for generations, this gorgeous book provides vibrant illustrations that are sure to capture the imagination of any child. Each page is beautifully illustrated as it tells the story of what God created on each day.
The next time I teach creation to one of my classes, I will be certain to use this book because I know the kids will love it and your kids will too. It is reasonably priced and available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
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.
