Description

A warm, comforting poem about finding peace in a community of neighbors

Peace is an offering.
A muffin or a peach.
A birthday invitation.
A trip to the beach.

Join this group of neighborhood children as they find love in everyday things—in sunlight shining through the leaves and cookies shared with friends—and learn that peace is all around, if you just look for it. With rhyming verse and soft illustrations, this book will help families and teachers look for the light moments when tragedy strikes and remind readers of the calm and happiness they find in their own community every day.

Praise For Peace is an Offering

"The soothing cadence of the text and the soft illustrations make this an excellent book for sharing one-on-one and for taking stock of small, sometimes unexpected joys."—Booklist
