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
Archbishop Desmond Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his efforts to bring equality, justice, and peace to South Africa.
