Let There Be Light Children's Book Review


About the Book

'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 Review

This is such a great book! I was so excited to see that this book is a board book which is the way to go when it comes to children's books!
This book starts at the beginning of Genesis and God creating the world. The illustrations are beautiful on each page. One part I really like is after the plants were created the author added a page talking about when the first flower opened. I had never really thought about the details like that and I think it adds to the children's imagine.
I really like this book and the main message relayed is that you were made for a purpose and are loved. Great book for kids to read along with Genesis.
