Children's LiteratureThis entry in the "Sand Castle Keeping the Peace" series focuses on an introduction to the differences between people and how understanding can help foster peace. Conduct of life and interpersonal relations are the answer. Prejudices and toleration are underlying themes even though the text reads like fiction. It is a short book but covers much in the few words and well-chosen photographs. The foreword-like page states: Taking the time to learn about others keeps the peace. The last page asks: What can you do to keep the peace? Both will help the teacher guide questions and discussion, though the young reader would probably get the message without adult intervention. There is a Glossary with fairly simple meanings. The format is quite attractive and easily-handled by a small child. This title will also help fill a library's collection in the diversity area. 2004, ABDO Publishing Company, Ages 5 to 8.
