Begins With You
by Katherine Scholes
Helping Children Grasp the Concept of Peace
The Concept of Peace can be difficult for children to grasp,
but award-winning author Katherine Scholes succeeds in explaining
clearly and simply how and why peace has a place in all of
our lives. The book begins at a personal level, and how this
can become a source of conflict. It then explores the many
ways in which conflicts can be resolved, including the positive
ways that avoid a winner/loser outcome.
From this starting point, the scope of the book broadens,
taking in national and international issues, including environmental
ones. In the end, it suggests that the best way to protect
peace-whether in our own homes or on a global level-is to
ensure that everyone is treated fairly.
Beautiful full-color illustrations, drawn with depth and
insight by Hans Christian Anderson Medalist Robert Ingpen,
complement Katherine Scholes’s powerful text.
“This slim, timely volume…tackles the concept
of peace…with resounding success. Scholes articulates
her ideas clearly…and empowers children through suggestions
of steps they themselves can take to become peacemakers.”
