Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2 - Radunsky strings together descriptive similes and metaphors to describe the essence of the word "peace." "What does Peace smell like? Like a bouquet of flowers in a happy family's living room…like fresh and new furniture…like pizza with onions and sausage.…" To the side of each question, the author indicates the names of children from the Ambrit International School in Rome who contributed their sentiments to the text. Other spreads attempt to explain how peace looks, sounds, tastes, and feels. Colorful gouache illustrations, primitive in design, supplement the concept. The only unique feature is the extensive list of words for peace in over 150 languages that appears at the end. While the book might be useful for a unit on peacekeeping, there is nothing original here. - Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 3. As much a celebration of the five senses as an antiwar message, this bright picture book combines Radunsky's playful gouache double-page scenarios with quotes from grade-schoolers at an international school in Rome. What does Peace look like? "Like something beautiful that goes away but will come back," reads the text, which is accompanied by illustrations showing a cat and a dog curled up together in a big basket. Peace sounds like "raindrops falling . . . like voices singing." Peace tastes like ice cream, in many flavors. A great last page shows the word for peace in nearly 200 languages, from Abenaki and Afrikaans to Zapotec and Zulu. Hazel Rochman

i got this out of the library and read it to my kids, 6 and 4 years old -- we all enjoyed the images it contained and my kids were eager to add their own impressions, which made for a memorable experience -- the book itself is poetic, moving, and often amusing, and the resulting conversation i got to have with my kids was an added, invaluable bonus.

I came across this book while Christmas shopping. The story asks Children of all ages "What does peace feel like", "...look like", "...taste like" ect. I had tears in my eyes while reading it,children have such amazing and off the wall answers to questions like these. I believe that people of all ages should read this book, especially with everything going on in the world at the moment. Stories like these give me hope for a brighter future.

I got this book to help my 4 year old class understand the world around them just a little better. 4 year olds are just realizing others have feelings and to care for their friends. This year's group just wasn't getting it. I read this book to them. Afterwards I asked what Peace felt like for them. I got some great answers. I offered the book to another teacher and she too felt the children understood the book and got a lot out of it. It isnt a book you read and just put back on the shelf. Lots of talking about each page and the class adding their thoughts. So if you want a book that helps a child to think get this one.

Great book, good pictures, and really great for a thread on having kids say what they think peace feels, looks, smells, tastes, and sounds like! Tells the names and ages of the kids that said it. Also great for learning about the 5 senses. Cute, inspiring, and sets kids off on the road to peace!

My 5-year-old enjoys this book. I got it to help add the word 'peace' to our daily repertoire but felt I needed some help giving the word a concrete definition. The text of "What Does Peace Feel Like" is derived from interviews with children as to what peace means to them in terms do their five senses. My daughter and I especially liked "What does peace sound like? Like a growling bear of war who gets shot with a love arrow and the fighting stops." We took this quote and have used it to help my daughter work through her upsets with some humor that she can visualize. Great concept.
