    Peace is an offering A muffin or peach A birthday invitation A trip to the beach Peace is gratitude for simple things Light through a leaf, a dragonfly s wings A kiss on the cheek, raindrops and dew A walk in the park, a bowl of hot stewSo begins Annette LeBox s poetic picture book meditation on the subject of peace, whether that be living a peaceful life personally, maintaining peace with friends and acquaintances, or finding peace after tragedy.Peace Is an Offering isPeace is an offering A muffin or peach A birthday invitation A trip to the beach Peace is gratitude for simple things Light through a leaf, a dragonfly s wings A kiss on the cheek, raindrops and dew A walk in the park, a bowl of hot stewSo begins Annette LeBox s poetic picture book meditation on the subject of peace, whether that be living a peaceful life personally, maintaining peace with friends and acquaintances, or finding peace after tragedy.Peace Is an Offering is a sweet, thoughtful book, one which explores the idea of peace from a variety of perspectives I appreciated that multiple ideas of peace as an experience, as a practice were addressed, and that the idea of peace as something you can build through thoughtfulness and kindness was highlighted throughout There is one scene which clearly references the events of 9 11 the text speaks of therubble of a fallen tower,while the artwork depicts a mother and two children sitting on a park bench, looking at the Brooklyn Bridge which I found very moving The artwork by Stephanie Graegin is colorful and appealing, depicting a diverse range of children and adults, all interacting in a peaceful way Recommended to anyone looking for children s stories that address the theme of peace how to live peacefully, and how to pursue a sense of peace within oneself

    Peace is holding on to another.Peace is the words you say to a brother Will you stay with me Will you be my friend Will you listen to my story till the very end Peace is a joining, not a pulling apart.It s the courage to bear a wounded heart.It s a safe place to live.It s the freedom from fear I saw a huge sign outside Mercy High School here in Balti yesterday that said I promise to listen to your story with the hashtag ONEBALTIMORE and I feel like that is the answer.Here in Baltimor Peace is holding on to another.Peace is the words you say to a brother Will you stay with me Will you be my friend Will you listen to my story till the very end Peace is a joining, not a pulling apart.It s the courage to bear a wounded heart.It s a safe place to live.It s the freedom from fear I saw a huge sign outside Mercy High School here in Balti yesterday that said I promise to listen to your story with the hashtag ONEBALTIMORE and I feel like that is the answer.Here in Balti, most rich and even middle class people have little contact with poor people Suburbanites whine on Facebook about their sports consumption being inconvenienced, while young men downtown SCREAM to make their stories heard We ve been dealing with media who already have a story that they want to tell, and we ve seen Baltians correcting them again and again And now that charges have been brought against the police officers charged with protecting the safety of our city, I am afraid thatandpeople are going to stop up their ears and refuse to hear the other side of the story I promise to listen to your story it is both the most and the least that we should expect from each other

    This picture book explores the concept of peace It begins with simple examples, ones that are found every day like trips to the beach or giving someone a muffin Peace is also mentioned as being gratitude for simple things in life and the book goes on to elaborate those with kisses, walks and food The book transitions into questions about support and peace, asking about staying together, drying tears and listening to stories It then moves to places you can find peace, whether that is with fam This picture book explores the concept of peace It begins with simple examples, ones that are found every day like trips to the beach or giving someone a muffin Peace is also mentioned as being gratitude for simple things in life and the book goes on to elaborate those with kisses, walks and food The book transitions into questions about support and peace, asking about staying together, drying tears and listening to stories It then moves to places you can find peace, whether that is with family or even in the wake of a tragedy or a loss It finishes with a few ideas of how children can create peace themselves, by doing things like walking away from a fight or comforting a friend.LeBox does so muchthan a list of peaceful ideas here Instead she moves from one stage to the next, showing not only what peace is but how it can be created and strengthened Readers will appreciate the focus on small and everyday things that either are peaceful or bring peace Because of that focus, children will not only understand peace as a larger concept from this book but feel empowered to create it themselves.Graegin s pencil, watercolor and digital illustrations have children and families from various backgrounds mixed together Readers can follow the boy with the cast on his arm from the very first page through the book While he may not appear on all of the pages, he creates a feel of a larger story happening as peace is explored.A strong and interesting look at peace and the way its created, this book is both inspiring and peaceful Appropriate for ages 3 5

    Gorgeous illustrations of each poem sentence along with sweet little poems show numerous ways, in verse, of gathering peace Here are some favorite lines So offer a cookie Walk away from a fight Comfort a friend Through the long, dark night Each page shows a scene with children, sometimes with a parent It s a calming book, one to read with a big sigh.
