Book Review: Let There Be Light

'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:
Ahh... this book is gorgeous!  The pictures are so beautiful and the story is so simply told.  This is a wonderful book that draws everyone in.  It is definitely going to be a favorite in our house.  The story is very close to the Biblical version and I appreciated that very much.  I highly recommend this book for every family.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
