Description


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.

Desmond Mpilo Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984. In 1986 he was elected archbishop of Cape Town, the highest position in the Anglican Church in South Africa. In 1994, after the end of apartheid and the election of Nelson Mandela, Tutu was appointed as chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate apartheid-era crimes. His policy of forgiveness and reconciliation has become an international example of conflict resolution and a trusted method of postconflict reconstruction. He is currently the chair of The Elders, where he gives vocal defense of human rights and campaigns for the oppressed.
