Peace by Wendy Anderson Halperin
This beautiful picture book requires lots of time to really pore over. While there is a "story" of sorts - "For there to be peace in the world there needs to be peace in nations" - the real meat is contained in the illustrations and the many quotes contained therein. The quotations come from so many famous people across all walks of life, all of whom are speaking to the possibility of peace in the world and our lives. A really lovely title that is deceptively short.
