Now in a board book edition! With warmth and humor, Archbishop Tutu distills his philosophy of unity and forgiveness for the very young.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu has a vision of God’s dream. It involves people who hold one another’s hands, but sometimes get angry and hurt one another — then say they’re sorry and forgive. It’s a wish that everyone will see that they are brothers and sisters, no matter their way of speaking to God, no matter the size of their nose or the sha de of their skin. Aided by vibrant artwork, Tutu conveys the essence of his ubuntu philosophy, a wisdom so clear and crystalline that even the smallest child can understand

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I truly enjoyed this book because my son is ten years old and he is having a hard time making friends at his new school.In his heart, he loves God, life, and all children but it seems that they don't seems to love him back the way that he believes we are to respect and get along one another or the way God's loves us all. So this book brightened his day and especially mine. It show children how to even play together in an easy and loving way that everyone can understand it. My son read it and loved it and the best thing is that he read it without me having to force him to read it. (smile) The art is beautiful. Keeps the childrens attention. He actually fell asleep with this book, as if all the children in this book were or should I say, are his friends. Thank you for creating a beautiful book to show our children that no matter what color, race or gender, God loves us all and he loves my son. A HUGE Thanks to the author for "God's Dreams".
This story is beautifully written and the illustrations are wonderful. My 4 and 8 year olds both enjoy it. One of our favorite bedtime stories.
