The latest National Geographic Children's Books title by Barbara Kerley, A Little Peace, gives a richly evocative and thought-provoking view of the world our children will inherit. Wise words and moving images offer a unique and enriching experience for every young reader. According to author Barbara Kerley, "I believe that peace doesn't just rest in the hands of politicians and world leaders. We all have the power to make the world more peaceful." The book juxtaposes photographs from around the world with a simple, reflective message about our responsibilities for finding and keeping peace on the planet. Like the highly acclaimed titles A Cool Drink of Water and You and Me Together, this beautiful children's picture book features superb National Geographic images accompanied by a brief, poetic text on a subject of global importance. All the photography is reproduced in miniature at the back of the book with geographic, historic, and cultural context and details explained. A world map leads readers to the location of each image. A Little Peace offers a vital lesson for children everywhere.

"All it takes is...one hand...one smile...a single voice...to give a wave...say hello, and spread a little peace...at the market...down the street on a crowded bus...or a sandy beach [cont]) A simple text accompanies vibrant full-page photos of people young and old all around the world--smiling, playing, studying, embracing. This is a great picture book to kick off a discussion of how to be peaceful and spread peace in our classrooms, communities, and families.
