Children of God by Archbishop Desmond Tutu


Children of God by Archbishop Desmond Tutu

A beautiful book of illustrated Bible stories, retold by the world's best-loved cleric. Nobel prizewinner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, re-tells over fifty of his favourite Bible stories for an audience of young readers. From classics such as the stories of Noah and the calming of the storm, to less-known stories such as Naboth's Vineyard or Ruth, the Archbishop makes these time-honoured stories come to life in his own inimitable voice. The book has a truly international flavour, with illustrators from around the world contributing their interpretations of the stories. The result is a glorious, and great value, package that will inspire a generation of children - and their carers.


Shortlisted for the Christian Library Book Award 2011 'Accessible and heartwarming...The Children of God Storybook Bible will draw in everyone who hears it' - The Times

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
