About this item

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, along with Douglas Carlton Abrams, has written a picture book about the many dreams of God, and how children are a part of them. Not only are sharing, caring, and friendship important, but so is understanding the importance of acceptance and the idea that difference does not divide people. Although God does not banish anger, forgiveness and forging ties are also part of life. With LeUyen Pham's richly colorful illustrations.
With warmth and humor, Archbishop Desmond Tutu distills his philosophy of unity and forgiveness into a picture book for the very young.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has a vision of God's dream, which he shares here with the youngest of listeners. It involves people who reach out and hold each other's hands, but sometimes get angry and hurt each other — and say they're sorry and forgive. It's a wish that everyone will see they are brothers and sisters, no matter their way of speaking to God, no matter the size of their nose or the shade of their skin. Aided by vibrant artwork evoking such images as a rainbow and a sharing circle, Tutu offers the essence of his ubuntu philosophy, a wisdom so clear and crystalline that even the smallest child can understand.
