About the Author
Archbishop Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his lifelong struggle to bring equality, justice, and peace to his native country of South Africa. He also served as Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa, from 1986 until 1996. In 1995, former South African President Nelson Mandela asked him to lead the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which became a model of national forgiveness and coexistence. He is currently the chairperson of the Elders, an international group charged with helping to end conflicts and solve global problems. Archbishop Tutu's most recent book is GOD HAS A DREAM: A VISION OF HOPE FOR OUR TIME. He lives with his family in South Africa.

He is also the cofounder of Idea Architects, a book and media development agency working with visionary authors to create a wiser, healthier, and more just world. He lives with his family in California.

Updated review, June 2013: A few years ago, I purchased multiple copies of this book and distributed to various nephews, nieces, and friend's children. In the end I was left with 2 copies, one that I kept for my daughter and one that had no home...until now. My second daughter fell in love with this book when she was 3 months old. Any time we read her the book and show her the pictures, she immediately cheers up. This is her favorite book and we never leave home without it.
Highly, highly recommended.
God dreams that we reach out and
hold one another's hand and play one
another's games and laugh with one
Not everything goes well in the life of a child, but God will always be with him and in his heart. We are all different, yet we are all in the same family. There is a way to make God's dream come true. Do you know the secret?
This is a charming book with wide-eyed illustrations that compliment it perfectly. This is a book with no specific audience, but rather one that is universal. It is the perfect book to emphasize the importance of peace, love, sharing and the fact that we are all brothers and sisters.
