This is a sweet little book Elsie got from the Imagination Library book thing. (I do love that whole concept--free books for kids! It makes my mother/librarian heart exceedingly happy.)
This one is seriously adorable and gentle. A soothing, reassuring kind of poem about all the little things that build up into a child's understanding of what peace is.
Peace is an offering,
a muffin or peach.
Peace is gratitude for simple things. Light through a leaf, a dragonfly's wings.
This may be a bad picture on my part, but in reality it is a delightful picture.
Aren't the illustrations nice? So peaceful and gentle.
This picture is mind-mindbogglingly cute!
(Like all Imagination library books, it has the English words with Spanish words underneath or nearby.)
And this one!
So much cuteness! I am definitely going to check out Graegin's other books.
All these questions that are so important.
9-11 is referenced.
Peace is a joining, not a pulling apart.
It's the courage to bear a wounded heart.
The courage to bear a wounded heart--this book even makes me stop and think.
How to encourage peace--
So offer a cookie.
Walk away from a fight.
People gathered around an upright piano always make me happy.
And then a lovely blessing.
May peace walk beside you
Wherever you are.
