About Peace is an Offering
Peace is an Offering is a book about finding peace in everyday activities all around you. The author uses beautiful lilting verse to describe each concept. Peace can be a “big” word and you may only think of it in terms of it being the opposite of war. Annette LeBox uses very insightful and thoughtful ideas to show how peace can be found in sharing “a muffin or a peach”…looking at “light through a leaf, a dragonfly’s wings”…or to “sing a quiet song”.
The text demonstrates how peace is accessible to everyone, young and old. In addition, the book gives many ideas of how to practice it in simple acts children can relate to and understand. A beautifully illustrated book with an important and wonderful rhyming story.
Maria Montessori, herself nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize multiple times, was a strong lifetime advocate for peace. Montessori believed “averting war is the work of politicians, establishing peace is the work of education”.
Add this treasure to your Montessori peace education activities and your Peace Table.
