What Does Peace Feel Like?

by Vladimir Radunsky

Published by An Anne Schwartz Book / Atheneum, 2004
16 pages
ISBN: 0-689-86676-3

Ages 4-8

The author of this cozy picture book asked a variety of children some questions about peace: What does it smell like? What does it look like? Their responses are fresh, poetic and surprising, giving the word “peace” meanings that correspond to the best that can be experienced by the five senses. Bold, textured paintings depict different children and all of their peaceful images: a freshly baked pizza, laughter and happiness and birthdays, someone stroking your back, an angel… . The child-poets are listed by name and age on each page and are all students at an international school in Rome. The last page lists the word “peace” in over one hundred different languages, from Abenaki to Zulu. CCBC categories: Issues in Today’s World.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
