May Peace Be With You

The United Nations' International Day of Peace will be celebrated on Sunday, September 21. On this day, the global community--each one of us individually and as a group--is asked to make efforts to promote peace.

You can participate on a small scale by sharing with your family a book about peace that might spark a discussion. We have these selections to offer:

The Big Book for Peace edited by Ann Durell and Marilyn Sachs

Can You Say Peace? by Karen Katz

Why War is Never a Good Idea by Alice Walker
Manneken Pis : a Simple Story of a Boy Who Peed on a War by Vladimir Radunsky.
