Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up—The PeaceJam Foundation is an inspiring and acclaimed educational program that utilizes Nobel Peace laureates to model for and motivate youth to improve our world. Darcy Gifford's PeaceJam: How Young People Can Make Peace in Their Schools and Communities (Jossey-Bass, 2004) traced the works of five teens and their collaborations with Nobel laureates. A Billion Simple Acts of Peace extends this story with profiles of figures such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, and Aung San Suu Kyi. In particular the stories revolve around their work with young adults on issues related to human rights, peace, the environment, and equity. The book is a wonderful introduction to social activism, to these Nobel laureates, and to the foundation. Perhaps more importantly, it demonstrates that young people can make a difference and can have a positive effect on the world around them. The 30-minute video offers incredible teaching opportunities. A great addition.—Ernie Bond, Salisbury University, MD

By Janis K. Atkinson on October 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book and DVD restored my faith in the next generation of young people who care about world peace and other serious issues. The grassroots nature of this movement combined with the nobel prize winners for a very positive, hopeful look at the future of our world - if people just get involved. I am so proud that my niece is involved and hope by making their story available, others will be inspired to so something.

Format: Paperback
This book will make disenchanted young ones feel hope and want to act to make the world around them a better place. The projects profiled are evidence of the youth of the world's power to create positive change in the world. PeaceJam affords them the opportunity, and the human family is better for it! Bravo PeaceJam and keep up the amazing work!
