Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In every way, every day, every place, children are encouraged to "talk peace." "On the street, when you meet, when you eat, when you play" day and night talk peace. The jaunty rhythm of the simple and brief rhyming text raises the spirits and makes one want to repeat the refrain of "talk peace." What a wonderful refrain to have engraved on one's brain! Moriuchi's mixed media illustrations have a refreshing simplicity that reflects the text; they show happy culturally diverse children playing and dancing hand-in-hand. Preschoolers will enjoy the variety of animals pictured throughout. The text can be read by primary grade students, but the book is also valuable as a way to begin a class discussion on creating an amicable environment and being a person of peace. Text and illustrations work together in their upbeat tone to remind us to eliminate the superficial and get back to basics. 2005, Holiday House, Ages 4 to 8.
—Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Saddened by events in the news, Williams pours out lyrics to express his feelings on peace. "On the street,/when you meet,/when you eat,-/talk peace." This is a difficult concept to convey to a young audience, and the writing is unremarkable. Even the attractive illustrations, which are colorful and primitive in appearance, do little to enhance the abstract message. On the other hand, the circular tops of the trees and the rounded bodies on bears give some mellowness to the vague idea. The large-print, red text uses words that most first graders will recognize. However, with the spate of books on peace lately, including Vladimir Radunsky's What Does Peace Feel Like? (S & S, 2004) and Todd Parr's The Peace Book (Little, Brown, 2004), libraries probably don't need this one.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
