I have always considered books to be great gifts to give. Probably because I know my own love and appreciation for them. It’s rare and very special, though, when I find a children’s book that just screams, “GIVE ME, GIVE ME!!” A book that is beautifully written, beautifully illustrated, and just an over all treasure. I have recently found such a book.
Let There Be Light is an amazing children’s book that serves as a perfect gift for kids of all ages. It’s simple wording and beautiful illustration of the story of creation lends itself to being gifted to new parents, young children, or really anyone who believes that they are part of something truly amazing!
My daughter and I read through this book together and both had the same feedback. That was beautiful!! Archbishop Desmond Tutu could not have picked a better illustrator for this book than the amazing author and illustrator, Nancy Tillman! The way her artwork and color choices mesh with the Archbishop’s words is truly inspirational and really just paints such a real picture of all the beauty that was first created for us by God.
If you can’t tell by now, I HIGHLY recommend this book to all families! My copy is actually signed and ready to be given to my beautiful Godson, David, as a reminder of just how much thought and planning went into the creation of him and everything that surrounds him. You can click through the link above to read more and purchase your own copy. I can just tell you that this won’t be one for the garage sale pile. This book will be passed down for many, MANY generations to come!!
