Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

peaceWith all the terrible things that have happened this week, what we could use right now is comfort and peace.

Available at Annie’s Book Stop of Worceter is The Big Book of Peace. In this era of glasnost and breathtakingly rapid political change, it’s hard to imagine a more timely and welcome book for children. The range of material included under the general umbrella of “peace” is wide, and includes original
fables, poems, biographies, illustrations, etc. from such distinguished contributors as Katherine Paterson, Maurice Sendak, Lois Lowry and Jerry Pinkney. The stories about the roots of war are told on a scale that children can grasp: envy between two girls in neighboring treehouses escalates into a
cold war; a pair of princes squabble over their turf and eventually destroy each other’s kingdoms. Equally useful for home, library or classroom–where more and more teachers are including units on peace–this thoughtfully written, attractively designed volume is a winner in every way.

If you’re looking for comfort from all the hate and senseless violence we seem to face in the world, this would be the ideal book for you, your children or your grandchildren.
