Staff Reviews

There are very good reasons why Archbishop Desmond Tutu was admired throughout the world. Reading God’s Dream to your children will start so many wonderful conversations and tap into themes of kindness, hurt, forgiveness, inclusion, and more of Tutu’s Ubuntu philosophy. The children are from diverse backgrounds, the illustrations a welcome reflection of the world we live in. A simple, tangible, and hopeful perspective on how we all can choose to walk through life. 

— Jenny


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.
