Back in 2014 PeaceQuest teamed up with celebrated children’s author and illustrator Wallace Edwards and Scholastic Canada to create a richly colourful, poignant and yet uplifting meditation on peace for all ages entitled What is Peace?
A stunning, thought-provoking look at finding peace in children’s lives.
Peace is a familiar word, its meaning both simple and complex.
Here, Wallace Edwards explores peace, and invites young readers to think about what that means to them. Through a series of linked questions and combined with Edwards’ singular art, the concept of peace is picked up, shaken, turned all around, and carefully examined from every angle.
Children experience stress, even violence, at home and at school and bear witness to news stories and family histories. There are many books on war for children; far fewer that examine peace. What Is Peace? engages readers to think about peace in their day-to-day lives, and around the world.
The book is now up on Scholastic’s website
Wallace Edwards is now touring schools across the Kingston region and will be travelling all of Canada in the coming months. Please contact us if you’d like to invite Wally to your community and we’ll see what we can do to help!
You can also catch a multi-lingual reading of What is Peace? by area youth at our The World Remembers: An Evening for Peace concert coming up this November! The poster for the concert features artwork from What is Peace?
