Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Gods dream. It involves people who hold one anothers hands, but sometimes get angry and hurt one another — then say theyre sorry and forgive. Its 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

Synopsis:

With warmth and humor, and aided by vibrant artwork, Archbishop Tutu shares his vision of God's dream with youngsters, and offers the essence of his ubuntu philosophy of unity and forgiveness. Full color.
