Editorial Reviews

Review

ECPA bestseller

"The book opens with two young black girls with hair in cornrows, a rambunctious mutt, and a playful cat engrossed in creative indoor play. The rhyming text seems to draw the girls outside as sunshine spills through their large window. “Dance in the grass. / Go climbing in trees. / Build castles with sand. / Face the wind; feel its breeze.” Ebullient illustrations in Catrow’s signature style depict the two girls and their pets as they frolic and explore in their own backyard and beyond, employing chiaroscuro with often dramatic effect. Throughout, both pictures and text revel in God’s creation, light in particular and its glowing presence in the sun, moon, and stars as well as within the children themselves...A life-affirming exploration of the common grace of creation and appreciation of the miraculous in every day." -Kirkus Reviews

“This is a joyful riot of colors and enthusiastic children and pets playing and celebrating how amazing and wondrous our universe is. Filled with fanciful and bold illustrations, it makes me smile every time I read it. Your kids will, too!”
 -Doc Kirby, WTBF, Troy, AL

5.0 out of 5 stars Let. There. Be. Light.
By Carmen Krein on July 6, 2019
I love all of Matthew Paul Turner's books. But, this one is at the top of my list. Maybe, it's because I read it to my daughter right after we came home from the hospital after she was born--and I had all of my hormones out of wack. But it still makes me cry to this day every time I read to her, "Cause of the day you were born, God said "Let there be light."

This book is a nice balance of playfulness with all of the things that you can do with light, and a nice story of how God's light is in each of us. Definitely one of my favorite books to read. Plus, it has sweet rhymes, which is always a plus in my opinion.
