“I chose this book as my favorite because they are peacemakers and they love everybody. I’m a peacemaker, too.” –Amelia, 3
Peace is a very important, but very abstract, concept for three- and four-year-olds, so in “The Peace Book,” Parr uses concrete illustrations of peace that are simple for preschoolers to understand. Each page has a different example of peace, and the book had my kids convinced that acting like a peacemaker was of utmost importance by the page that reads “Peace is having enough pizza in the world for everyone.” The illustrations are simple, bright, bold, and pretty silly. This was one of many Parr books we grew to love last year.
