I'm not sure who could use this. Maybe a school librarian if she has instruction time with the classes? Maybe a regular teacher if he has the freedom to add a large unit to the curriculum?

I didn't get too much out of it except for one discouraging new datum - the town of Los Alamos, NM, rejected a Children's Peace Statue because some veterans' groups... (said) that the children's efforts were unpatriotic and disrespectful of the men and women who fought in the Pacific in World War II."" ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395726190, Hardcover)

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, fifty-eight writers and illustrators have donated prose, poetry, and artwork that deal with the proposition of peace - from the day-to-day issues of personal and community violence to international conflict. Some of the contributors are Leo and Diane Dillon, Walter Dean Myers, Kioko Mori, Katherine Paterson, Jerry Pinkney, Milton Meltzer, Paul Morin, and Wendell Minor. Children of today face the greatest challenge humanity has ever known: creating a world in which every man, woman, and child has the opportunity to live in peace. Throughout history, war has been the method of choice to resolve arguments over borders, injustices, ideologies, religions, and numerous other passionately held beliefs. The heroes of history have been the brave men and women who have risked their lives to fight their countries' battles. Events of the twentieth century have brought changes that now make going to war, for any reason, obsolete. The heroes of the twenty-first century will be men and women who find alternatives to war. These people are children today.
