My girls learned a lot from this book and keep going back to it. It has wonderful lessons of what our world needs in this day and age.
This book gives a simple but clear understanding of different peace activities that people can do. It is definitely inspiring and very recommended to be used to teach children about peace.
Not only did my kids find this fascinating - but so did I. We all learned so much from this beautifully illustrated book.
