Peace is...
Everything thing for kids these days is "educational" - from videos, to books, to toys. And I guess teaching Emma her ABC's and 123's is a good thing, but Julie and I have wanted to make sure that Emma is also receiving moral education as well. We look for books that will develop her into a compassionate, loving, open-minded, and other-oriented little girl. Some of the best books we've found are by a children's author, Todd Parr. One of my favorite titles is The Peace Book. Here is what he says peace is...

Peace is making new friends.
Peace is keeping the water blue for all the fish.
Peace is listening to different kinds of music.
Peace is saying you're sorry when you hurt someone.
Peace is helping your neighbor.
Peace is reading all different kinds of books.
Peace is thinking about someone you love.
Peace is giving shoes to someone who needs them.
Peace is planting a tree.
Peace is sharing a meal.
Peace is wearing different clothes.
Peace is watching it snow.
Peace is keeping the streets clean.
Peace is offering a hug to a friend.
Peace is everyone having a home.
Peace is growing a garden.
Peace is taking a nap.
Peace is learning another language.
Peace is having enough pizza in the world for everyone.
Peace is keeping someone warm.
Peace is new babies being born.
Peace is being free.
Peace is traveling to different places.
Peace is wishing on a star.
Peace is being who you are.

Peace is being different, feeling good about yourself, and helping others. The world is a better place because of YOU!
