Grade 3-6 The introduction to this very attractive book describes the founding and purposes of Children as the Peace makers, an organization which spon sors and organizes annual international peace trips for children from ages 8 to 14. The remainder of the book is the photographic story of a Soviet girl's peace trip to America. Katerina Ly cheva, 11 years old, was invited to visit America for a whirlwind tour. Travel ing with her was an American girl, 11- year-old Star Rowe. The story of their few hectic days together (in Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., Hous ton, and Los Angeles) is told by the girls in alternating sections. Content and style are consistent with the age and interests of the girls, and most chil dren would be able to relate to their feelings, pleasures, and experiences. The oversize format is chock-full of ex cellent photographs, many in color and many presented as double-page spreads. This is a very attractive pro duction and would be useful in social studies units. Rosie Peasley, Sylvan Union School District, Modesto, Calif.
