    1. I read this truly wonderful book while visiting a friend today. she had brought it home from the children's room of the library where she works. It's essence is how to build peace one person, one heart, one home, one neighborhood at a time. It's filled with well chosen quotes taken from international civic, religious, spiritual, and literary people you (not your children) will recognize. And the art work is simple and lovely.But who is this book really for. According to the inside cover, it's in [...]

    3. A simple poem is at the heart of this picture book about peace. Each line of the poem forms the basis of a page of the book and is also accompanied by other quotes about peace that bring a wonderful depth to the entire read. As one reads, it almost becomes a chant about peace, a reverberation of the power of peace, and when one finishes that peace lingers for a long time. When I finished the book, I immediately wanted to do two things: start all over again and also research some of the quotes an [...]

    4. A wonderful vision for mankind and a dear wish for peace on Earth. Two things make this book unique, the first is the arrangement of the illustrations. Every spread looks like a piece of stained glass. Elegant in its shapes, with each bit of "glass" showing a different scene based on the topic of that page. Most show people, but there are decorative and symbolic elements as well, such as: homes, ecosystems, and the patterns on creatures. The Earth itself is on every page. These pencil and waterc [...]

    5. Book summary: This book is about peace. This book is saying for there to be peace in the world there must be peace in nations. For there to be peace in nations there must be peace in cities. For there to be peace in cities there must be peace in neighborhoods. For there to be peace in neighborhoods, there must be peace in schools. For there to be peace in schools there must be peace in homes. For there to be peace in homes there must be peace in our hearts. When there is peace in our hearts then [...]

    6. "If you spend more time asking appropriate questions rather than giving answers or opinions, your listening skills will increase" ~ Brian Koslow This is just one of hundreds of quotes from this tremendously written and beautifully illustrated children's book about peace.

    7. The message is wonderful and the illustrations are beautiful, the addition of all kinds of quotes adds impact but sometimes they are hard to read.

    8. The concept is very nice, but I feel like this is more for parents than actual kids. If you just stick to the main poem, it might be good for kids, but the quotes sprinkled throughout are not kid-friendly. They are in really small print, the words curve all around the page, and a lot of them use vocabulary that kids reading picture books would not be ready for.

    9. A simple yet clever picture book meant to inspire young readers toward the pursuit of peace. The integration of the quotes in interesting, but they are so minimized by the design choices that I would think most adult readers will pass right by them--and unfortunately that is where the story is really unveiled

    10. As a librarian, I can use this book on so many levels. As a mom, I read it to my daughter and she connected with it on her own level, but I know as she grows, we will be able to read it again and again to take in the different aspects. The quotes around each picture as beautiful and the illustrations are gorgeous. Highly recommend.

    11. A beautiful poem forms the basis of this book. Each page shares a line about peace. The illustrations provide examples to support the line on the page. Various sayings about peace are woven among the pictures.

    12. Filled with quotes, Wendy Anderson Halperin follows the roots of peace, and that it starts at home. Beautiful illustrations and a must have for many quotes on peace.

    13. I would recommend this book for older children who can already read looking for something beautiful to inspire them to do good. This is also a good discussion piece about kindness and conflict resolution.

    14. Halperin, W.A & Chaghatzbanian, S. (2013). Peace. New York, NY: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing Division. No review source necessary.Picture Book Soak. (One I can't wait to use with students.)An illustrator wasn’t mentioned, but it stated it was designed by Sonia Chaghatzbanian. I’m not sure if that means the same thing. This book is incredible beyond words. Honestly. I am consumed with the concepts of consideration, equality, kindness, compassion, empathy, and everything else [...]

    15. Fiction "Twin Text":The Most Important Gift of All, David Conway, Copyright 2006. Rationale for Selection:I selected this book as a fictional twin text for Peace because of the themes of love, family, community and togetherness represented in both books. In The Most Important Gift of All, Ama's younger brother is born and she sets off to find the most important gift she can give him. Eventually she discovers that gift is love, and experiences what love looks and feels like first hand. While Peac [...]

    16. A very lovely and peace-granting book. There are so many amazing quotes to accompany the beautiful pictures both from Wendy Anderson Halperin and the children whose artwork also graces the book. While I understand this book is classified as children's literature, I believe anyone can benefit from reading Peace. There is such constant strife going on in our world, it can be difficult to find even a modicum of peace whether outside or inside oneself. This book helps to remind us that there is good [...]

    17. I found this book while looking through the non-fiction section at the library. I loved the illustrations in the book and the message was simple for children to understand. This book talks about how world peace is up to each nation, city, neighborhood, school, home and in our hearts and how each is truly interrelated. Within the illustrations there are quotes about love, sharing, the environment, peace, life, beauty, etc. It would be a great book to read aloud to younger students but yet the old [...]

    18. Amazing book. The illustrations are beautiful and evoke a peacefulness. Many small illustrations fill the double page spread. Between the vignettes the white space has wonderful inspirational quotes from famous leaders both religious and political, poets, and others I have not heard of before from around the globe and through the ages from Mother Teresa, Confucius, Albert Einstein, and more about kindness, peace, and living life. The concept is peace. The book creates a full circle of how to ach [...]

    19. How would you like a book that could be read a double-page at a time, starting important conversations each week for a long while? Following the eternal question asked in the Tao Te Ching, How can we bring peace to the world?, Halperin adds to that question by adding answers like ‘for there to be peace in the world, there must be peace in nations’, and then ‘peace in cities, neighborhoods, and on, until she arrives at our hearts. This is an important book, each page filled with beautiful q [...]

    20. I read this picture book twice because there was so much depth in each image and page. The main text is very simple and follows a pattern (There will be peace in our world when there is peace in our nations, in our nations when there is peace in our neighborhoods, etc. down to peace in our hearts). I particularly enjoy that the pattern then goes back up through the different sections so that peace in our hearts leads to peace in our homes, all the way back up to peace in the world. The illustrat [...]

    21. A very inspirational book about peace and what needs to happen to make it possible. It begins by saying, "For there to be peace in the worldere must be peace in nations. For there to be peace in nations, there must be peace in cities." And so onEach page has several quotes that offer advice on how everyone can play a part in promoting peace. Here are some examples:"See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil."--Japanese Proverb"Seek to build not destroy."---Neale Donald Walsch"Education is the most [...]

    22. "Peace" written by Wendy Anderson Halperin is a captivating graphic novel poem that contains words of wisdom on how to maintain peace within themselves and the community. Each page in this book is filled with quotes from famous people having to do with respecting each other and respecting ourselves. The pictures and illustrations are connected to the words that are written on the pages. This book motivated myself to be kinder to others and motivated the young children I work with to be nicer to [...]

    23. I've had this book in my TBR pile for more than two weeks, but opened it on the day I needed it most. All the lovely descriptions in the world pale in comparison to the effect it can have at the right moment to the right person. I've collected quotations and lines of text since I was very young. These well-selected and placed lines of timeless text begin with a brilliant dedication to the five senses and concludes with a back cover quotation from Mother Theresa: "Peace begins with a smile." With [...]

    24. Possibly one of my favorite books ever.Although Peace is full of quotes from iconic figures from around the world and throughout history, I felt that Halperin's message was perfectly illuminated by the quotes and illustrations.A few of my favorite quotes from Peace include:"A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes."-Gandhi"If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of p [...]

    25. Soft, muted colors quietly draw the reader into this book about Peace. The book is dedicated to your senses: To Seeing, To Touching, To Smelling, To Tasting, To Hearing. The font chosen for the books is “Love Ya Like A Sister.” It opens with, “For there to be peace in the world” and then each two-page spread is a visual delight that covers a topic. Famous quotes about peace, and additional text share how we can find peace in many places around the world. As Jimi Hendrix said, “When the [...]

    26. Peace is a learned cycle. The author breaks down the cycle and builds it back up again with quotes on the topic of peace from great thinkers, writers etc of our time. Each two page spread is laid out like a story quilt with quotations appearing between watercolor and pencil illustrations. The total effect is calming and thoughtful.A special treat is a two page spread of artwork created by students from various schools in Michigan (all are credited at the end of the book). This is a book that nee [...]

    27. This book shares a multilayered approach to describing and illustrating peace, almost to the point of distraction. You really must take your time to work through this one with images almost competing with poignant thoughts. Did I find something peaceful? This, shared in closing:"May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know its [...]
