Synopsis

Peace on Earth Poems and Prayers for Peace by Sophie Piper

Over ninety years since the armistice to end all wars...and still the fighting goes on. Children respond warmly to the idea of a world without war, and this book helps them articulate their hopes and dreams for a better world...at school, in the community and on a world scale. The poems and prayers - which are drawn from biblical, traditional and contemporary sources - also provide inspiration for how the reader can, by their attitude and actions, work for peace in their own world. The illustrations by Giuliano Ferri combine warmth and sophistication - a lovely match for the theme.

Reviews

These prayers, written in simple language using words and ideas children can easily understand, are appropriate for a variety of situations. The collection reminds readers to appreciate the world and encourages children to think about their place in it by addressing issues like social justice, inclusiveness, and peace. . . . A fine addition to religion collections. -- School Library Journal on The Lion Book of Prayers to Read & Know
