Bishop Desmond Tutu enlisted the help of 20 artists from around the world to illustrate the pages of Children of God. The result is a breathtaking array of art in a “global Bible for children.” The pages reflect a spectrum of skin tones and facial features, along with this message: “We are all God’s children.”

Each of the 56 stories is written using simple language for its target audience of children ages 4–7. Each story presents an attribute of God (e.g., “God is in charge”) along with a one-sentence prayer (e.g., “Dear God, help me to trust you when I am afraid”). The book is accompanied by two CDs featuring Tutu’s grandfatherly voice and South African accent.
