Let There Be Light is a durable hard cardboard book that can with stand young preschool children. The pages aren't paper so they can't tear them. Let There Be Light is a beautifully illustratered stroy about Creation. The message and twinkleing lights seem to sparkle on the page. I'd say good age group for this book would be between 1-5 years. The Creation story is very clear and presented in a eye appealing manner. I'm going to add this book to the church nursery.
