The Children’s Book of Peace

With conflict, terror and political unrest dominating the headlines day after day, my favourite book has to be: The Children’s Book of Peace. This publication evolved after the creation of the ‘first ever’ Schools’ International Peace Quilt that was founded in my home town of Guisborough. Hot off the press and documented within its pages, are school children’s colourful illustrations (all 211 of them from 203 countries) expressing how they feel peace can be achieved. Each drawing is displayed alongside the name of the creator(s) as well as their stories. Included, is further information about flags, populations, currencies, religions and much more besides. With guidance from their teachers, not only does The Children’s Book of Peace symbolically commemorate World Book Day through its rich celebration of cultural diversity; additionally, this book’s ongoing legacy is still being told through the universal language of visual art to celebrate Rio 2016!   Marilyn Sylvester
