“The Peace Book” by Todd Parr was one of the first books I bought my little gosling when he was about 6 months: very colourful, simple drawings, good general message, practical notions. Boardbook, very sturdy and easy to handle from early on. He liked it immediately and still enjoys flipping through it at almost 2. I found it equally useful to teach my little gosling simple new words or more complex notions, by making up stories around the concepts in the book. It was the image of the elephant stepping on the mouse’s tail that helped us learn to “say you’re sorry when you hurt someone”. He’s currently having fun listening to the words in different languages on the page with “peace is learning a new language” (“konnichiwa”, “hola”, “guten tag”, “meow”,…). It will continue to be useful as we explore some of the deeper and actual notions (peace is “being who you are” or “keeping the water clean for all the fish and the streets clean”).
