Let There Be Light Children's Book Review #booklookbloggers #bookreview

I was sent another book for reviewing purposes and it just so happened to be a children's book.I thought it might be a good book for my six year old to read. You see, he loves to read all kinds of different books and so I'm constantly adding a few new ones every couple of weeks. No joke, this little boy has shelf after shelf filled with so many different books.
He's just like my husband and I-he LOVES to read.

One of the latest books that he read and really liked was a book called,
Let There Be Light, by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Nancy Tillman is the illustrator.



Book Description
A boardbook edition of the popular Let There Be Light, the story of Creation from Nobel Peace Prize winner, bestselling author, and cultural icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu paired with Nancy Tillman, the phenomenally successful New York Times bestselling children’s author/illustrator of On the Night You Were Born.
Now available as a board book, Let There Be Light combines the love and warmth of Nobel Peace Prize Winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu with the extraordinary talents of bestselling 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, this popular book brings the story of creation to life for readers young and old.

About the Author

He is the author of numerous books including the Children of God Storybook BibleGod’s Dream, and Desmond and the Very Mean Word. From 2007 to 2013, Tutu was the founding Chair of the Elders, a group of global leaders who are working to promote the shared interests of humanity.

She also created the mischievous cat Tumford from Tumford the Terrible and Tumford’s Rude Noises, and illustrated It’s Time to Sleep, My Love, by Eric Metaxas.



My Thoughts
The book is basically the Story of Creation put into words that younger children can follow and understand, along with beautiful illustrations as well.
I handed it to my son as a Christmas gift and he ran over to our reclining chair to read it. The first thing he said was, "Thanks mom! I can't wait!" Like I said, he LOVES to read.
He decided to read it out loud to the family. He got through the entire book and I could tell he was enjoying it. He told me that he liked the pictures inside and that the story was really good. I'm quoting him exactly.
I'm happy he enjoyed it. I found it pretty enjoyable myself. I'd recommend this book for both children and adults.
