About the Author:

Though they are constantly traveling around the world to promote PeaceJam, Dawn Engle and Ivan Suvanjieff make their home in Denver, Colorado.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up—The PeaceJam Foundation is an inspiring and acclaimed educational program that utilizes Nobel Peace laureates to model for and motivate youth to improve our world. Darcy Gifford's PeaceJam: How Young People Can Make Peace in Their Schools and Communities (Jossey-Bass, 2004) traced the works of five teens and their collaborations with Nobel laureates. A Billion Simple Acts of Peace extends this story with profiles of figures such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, and Aung San Suu Kyi. In particular the stories revolve around their work with young adults on issues related to human rights, peace, the environment, and equity. The book is a wonderful introduction to social activism, to these Nobel laureates, and to the foundation. Perhaps more importantly, it demonstrates that young people can make a difference and can have a positive effect on the world around them. The 30-minute video offers incredible teaching opportunities. A great addition.—Ernie Bond, Salisbury University, MD
