A warm, comforting poem about finding peace in a community of neighbors
Peace is an offering.
A muffin or a peach.
A birthday invitation.
A trip to the beach.
Join this group of neighborhood children as they find love in everyday thingsin sunlight shining through the leaves and cookies shared with friendsand learn that peace is all around, if you just look for it. With rhyming verse and soft illustrations, this book will help families and teachers look for the light moments when tragedy strikes and remind readers of the calm and happiness they find in their own community every day.
Like Parr's bestseller "It's Okay to Be Different," this primer about peace gives parents and teachers a valuable tool in talking about this challenging subject to younger children. Full color.
