Description

This lavish and lyrical picture book based on the Tao Te Ching ponders the eternal question: How can we bring peace to the world? Radiating tenderness and reflecting the influence of eastern philosophies, a compilation of exquisite illustrations and wisely chosen words reveals the heart of where peace truly must originate: within ourselves. The beautifully intricate artwork, with tiny, precisely rendered details of life across the globe, complements the spare and powerful text that includes quotations from famous peacemakers. And with each reading, you'll find something else to notice--such as the visual storylines that subtly play out across the pages. Poetic and soothing, Peace is a masterful exploration of the true path to world peace and serves as a perfect springboard to discussions about bullying, conflict resolution, and right actions.

Review quote

"The symmetry of the layouts and the clean beauty of the pencil-and-watercolor artwork, with its images of children, families, flower, and fauna, spans the globe and creates pleasing effects throughout the volume...Here's one to pore over and ponder."
