This is a book for parents and teachers to share with children at the point when they feel they are ready to face the brutal realities of life in a war zone. Simply and honestly written, it is just the right story to inspire discussion and humanitarian actions to help bring peace to our turbulent world. The foreword by former Secretary-General Kofi Annan is especially powerful, and the suggestions for young people to help with the UN’s efforts is a useful tool for awareness and action.
