Kindergarten-Grade 2–For children, the concept of peace can be a difficult one to understand, and Parr makes an admirable attempt to explain it. He relates the notion to making new friends, listening to different kinds of music, and helping your neighbor. Where he stretches it a bit is with sentiments such as, "Peace is wishing on a star" or "…watching it snow," even if the images are tranquil. Bright primary colors and bold black outlines define cartoonlike characters (animal and human) with smiling features. A helpful and engaging book that's sure to spark discussion.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

PreS-Gr. 2. Parr offers another blazingly colored, upbeat celebration of diversity in this picture book that seems directly descended from the Peanuts characters' familiar declarations of "Happiness is . . ." On each page, Parr features a different definition of peace: offering a hug to a friend, keeping the streets clean, and so on. The closing message ("Peace is being who you are") is illustrated with Parr's usual multicultural mix of blue, green, brown, yellow, and purple faces. This does echo greeting-card sentimentality, but Parr's boldly outlined, bright images are as cheerful as ever, and his broad interpretations of peace could start discussions with children trying to wrap their minds around such an abstract concept, widening this book's audience to a slightly older age group than Parr's usual preschool fan base.
