PEACE receives ‘splendid’ Kirkus Review


A visually splendid primer on peace.”

“In this attractive package, lyrical, rhyming text explores various forms of peace.”

“Extra attention is paid to inclusivity...This imperative is found in the illustrations as well, in which a multiracial cast of children includes two who wear eyeglasses and one who walks with forearm crutches.”

“The lulling text will work well to soothe young activists…[p]oignant, broad strokes invite a deep delve.”
