The Peace Book

Todd Parr. Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, $15.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-316-83531-2

Todd Parr's The Peace Book is a timely explanation of the term for young readers living in a sometimes uneasy world. In the neon-hued, cartoon landscape, peace can be anything from ""keeping the water blue for all the fish"" to ""wearing different clothes"" (the picture shows two girls, one in funky bellbottoms, the other in a traditional burqa) to ""having enough pizza in the world for everyone."" .
