Illustrations are wonderfully rendered, as always.
This would make a perfect book for parents to introduce kids to some of the most influential peace fighters in history. Some of the choices picked for "People of Peace" might not be the best representations but there are definitely few well known figures that kids should learn a thing or two about.
"People of Peace" no doubt is a great book to add to anyone's private library.
I really liked the way it paired or grouped well-known advocates with lesser known figures. Each person, from Aristide Briand to Malala Yousafzai, has their own short biography, a unique illustration, and an eye-catching title.
I would have liked to see a bit more diversity in the people profiled, but there is representation for both women and people of color. It would be easy for educators to go through this book in a month or so with students, reading about one figure a day.
