This would be a great social studies book for high school. But then again I'm very partial to this man and his life's work.
I was a little nervous when I saw that Talking Peace was in the Juvenile section of my library. "Oh no," I thought. "Is this going to be some picture book for kids?"

this is a book that every adult who truly loves a child should share with them
