Picture Books for the 6th Principle
Our 6th of the 7 UU Principles is The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
Following our Rainbow scheme for the kids it is worded (Indigo Promise) Insist on Peace and Justice for All
The books we read for this Principle this summer:
Why War is Never a Good Idea by Alice Walker is an unflinching, but beautifully illustrated, reflection on all the consequences of war.
Can You Say Peace? shows children from around the world saying "peace" in different languages.
What Does Peace Feel Like? has quotes from children about what peace feels, smells, tastes, and sounds like. It's quite delightful.
Peace Begins With You is my favorite, being a simple explanation of conflict, peace, and how we can work toward peace.
This list of books about peace and social justice looks promising also.
