Give Peace A Chance Children’s Books & Music Tracks

 What the world is desperate for and always has been is World Peace! And no more than this moment in time with Russia and Ukraine. But how? From where I sit it looks impossible to achieve. Talking seems to be going nowhere.

But none the less, let us take World Peace on Board and hope that it becomes infectious and spreads around the world like Covid-19 did. If only.

Here are some picture books to teach our children the importance of living in peace with the rest of the world.

And then 30 superb music tracks promoting world peace.

So, what do world leaders not understand about the three little words “World Peace, please!”

“All we are saying is Give Peace A Chance!”

This lavish and lyrical picture book based on the Tao Te Ching ponders the eternal question: How can we bring peace to the world?

Radiating tenderness and reflecting the influence of eastern philosophies, a compilation of exquisite illustrations and wisely chosen words reveals the heart of where peace truly must originate: within ourselves. The beautifully intricate artwork, with tiny, precisely rendered details of life across the globe, complements the spare and powerful text that includes quotations from famous peacemakers. And with each reading, you’ll find something else to notice–such as the visual storylines that subtly play out across the pages.

Poetic and soothing, Peace is a masterful exploration of the true path to world peace and serves as a perfect springboard to discussions about bullying, conflict resolution, and right actions.

REMEMBER: The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

– Nicolas Chamfort



“Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.” —Mark Twain


Happiness is…if we achieve World Peace or at least peace between Russia and Ukraine.



I went to a seafood disco last week! Pulled a mussel!


Love is…making a little bit of heaven on earth.


A time for War (I don’t think so)…certainly a time for peace.
