This 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.
Like the highly acclaimed titles A Cool Drink of Water and You and Me Together, this beautiful book features superb National Geographic images accompanied by a brief, poetic text on a subject of global importance. Near the end of the book a double-page spread offers thumbnail pictures of each photograph presented along with an explanation of where it was taken.
This is a visually stunning book with an important message. The spare, refreshing text winds its way around and through full-color photographs. Each vividly captures the universal emotions and peaceful pursuits of everyday people around the world. A Little Peace offers a vital lesson for children, and indeed all of us, everywhere.
The author, Barbara Kerley, is a former Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal and now lives in northern California with her husband and daughter. Her website is BarbaraKerley.com. She wrote this book with a conviction that we each can make a difference: “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.”
