Reviews

Todd Parr's The Peace Book is a timely explanation of the term for young readers living in a sometimes uneasy world. In the neon-hued, cartoon landscape, peace can be anything from "keeping the water blue for all the fish" to "wearing different clothes" (the picture shows two girls, one in funky bellbottoms, the other in a traditional burqa) to "having enough pizza in the world for everyone." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

K-Gr 2-For children, the concept of peace can be a difficult one to understand, and Parr makes an admirable attempt to explain it. He relates the notion to making new friends, listening to different kinds of music, and helping your neighbor. Where he stretches it a bit is with sentiments such as, "Peace is wishing on a star" or "-watching it snow," even if the images are tranquil. Bright primary colors and bold black outlines define cartoonlike characters (animal and human) with smiling features. A helpful and engaging book that's sure to spark discussion.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
