Abstract/Notes: The picture book is a simple yet profound tool for teaching peace. Picture books are nearly pieces of art--with rich text accompanied by illustrations, paintings, and photographs that speak to the spirit of the child. They are an ideal peace resource, in part because they are readily accessible for all age levels. Books can be borrowed through local library services, an easy and cost-free option. A school may find it worthwhile to build a peace library collection, thereby establishing a resource pool that can be shared by all teachers in the building. Five hundred dollars will buy about 30 books. A fund drive or a small grant are options for tight budgets. In some schools, children donate a book to the classroom or school library on their birthdays. Consider creating a peace bibliography and asking families to donate a book from the list as a contribution to the peace book project. Next, look at what it means to teach for peace and how to organize the learner objectives for teaching peace. The following categories form the framework for a curriculum for teaching peace: (1) Inner Peace; (2) Peace in a Classroom Community; (3) Universal/Cultural Peace; and (4) Peace in Nature. Given this framework for cultivating the peace-loving spirit of the child, it is possible to look more closely at the picture book themes that will form the basis for or complement the objectives that shape the 4-part framework. This article discusses books which have been included for both powerful text and exceptional art.
