Book List: Picture Books about Peace and Hope

There is an abundance of books to help children understand the impact of war (see our Picture Books about War and Conflict here), but it is also important to give children a message of social peace, equality and hope. These picture books remind us why we work so hard to avoid war - the beauty and value of peace.
