The latest National Geographic Children's Books title by Barbara Kerley, A Little Peace, gives a richly evocative and thought-provoking view of the world our children will inherit. Wise words and moving images offer a unique and enriching experience for every young reader. According to author Barbara Kerley, "I believe that peace doesn't just rest in the hands of politicians and world leaders. We all have the power to make the world more peaceful."

The book juxtaposes photographs from around the world with a simple, reflective message about our responsibilities for finding and keeping peace on the planet. Like the highly acclaimed titles A Cool Drink of Water and You and Me Together, this beautiful children's picture book features superb National Geographic images accompanied by a brief, poetic text on a subject of global importance. All the photography is reproduced in miniature at the back of the book with geographic, historic, and cultural context and details explained. A world map leads readers to the location of each image. A Little Peace offers a vital lesson for children everywhere.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-6–What does it take to spread a little peace? Richard Solomon, President of the U.S. Institute of Peace, states in an afterword that the responsibility ...does not rest with governments and organizations alone; it is also the work of individuals. This simple, beautiful photo-essay demonstrates this philosophy. The colorful pictures are supported by limited, yet powerful text, illustrating how each person can work to achieve peace. Children from around the globe highlight simple actions, such as lending a hand, sharing a smile, and making friends. A concluding spread identifies the city and country where each photo was taken, and a postscript on the organization is included. Sharing this book with youngsters should spark discussion.–Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA
