One simple message is effectively conveyed by a series of “I” statements, each a small peacemaking action a child can act upon in daily life.
“I help in the home.”
“I take care of pets.”
“I try to make friends.”
Very empowering for children — they will discover they are already peacemakers! This little book helps children make the connection between peace and caring for the self, other people, one’s community, and the environment. Author and Montessorian Chandra Fernando donates proceeds to global children’s relief efforts. Paperback, 30 pages. Ages 2 to 6.
