Book Synopsis



Peace is on purpose. Peace is a choice. Peace lets the smallest of us have a voice.

From a hello and pronouncing your friend's name correctly to giving more than you take and saying I'm sorry, this simple concept book explores definitions of peace and actions small and big that foster it.

Award-winning authors, Baptiste Paul and Miranda Paul, have teamed up with illustrator Estelí Meza--winner of the 'A la Orilla del Viento' the premier Picture Book Contest Award in Mexico--to create an inspiring look at things we can all do to bring peace into our lives and world.
