"And It Was So" illustrated by Tasha Tudor was published by The Westminster Press, Philadelphia, copyright MCMLVIII (1958)
Tasha Tudor's feeling for the warm eternal unity of man and of mankind with the great natural world of God's creation, all manifests itself beautifully and clearly in this book. Here she Illuminates for the youngest children the Bible's most basic meanings, 'translating" brief, carefully selected, scriptural passages into the language of her sensitive, unique, timeless art.
A child's first questions are also those of the thoughtful adult: Who made us? Where do we come from? What can we do? Why? For each of these the bible has ultimate answers, in some of the most thrilling words ever written. Now Tasha Tudor illustrates the words in a way to remain memorable for child and adult. They speak of God, the creator and sustainer of life, of our praise to him for his goodness, of Jesus and his teachings and why he came to us, of the church in which we learn about God and worship him.
