"Peace is watching it snow..."

 

This wonderful book is filled with Todd Parr's trademark bold and colorful artwork, as well as straightforward yet profound statements about peace. 

 

Kids and adults will likely pause to reflect on peaceful things and actions with sentences like, "Peace is everyone having a home" and "Peace is wishing on a star". A two-page spread shows a bird soaring in the air, along with the message, "Peace is being free".

 

Peace is an abstract concept that has many meanings—it's both a feeling and a state—and The Peace Book effectively illustrates this powerful concept to children through bold illustrations and thought-provoking statements.
