What Does Peace Feel Like?

Can we learn about peace without considering its terrible opposite? Here is a list of books for children on the subject, from the Institute for Humane Education.

cvr9780689866760_9780689866760_lgVladimir Radunsky (whose Manneken Pis is one of my all-time favorite books) reflects on children’s perceptions in this thoughtful, serious collection.

Yet here is what’s going on in the world. Do we really know any more what peace feels like? Is there a day when somewhere in the world, innocents are not being killed in wars waged in the name of borders, territory, religion, ideology, or just plain greed?

Children did not make this mess.

They don’t deserve to inherit it.
