Peaceful Pieces

Hines, Anna Grossnickle.  Peaceful Pieces.  Illustrated by Anna Grossnickle Hines. Henry Holt and Co, 2011. With her beautiful tapestry of words and images, Hines pays homage to and appeals for peace: on a personal level, between individuals, and among diverse cultures and nations. The poems take many forms: some rhyme, some are free-verse, some are long, and some are short. Each is highlighted by one of her handmade quilts, rich in texture, color, and detail. The book also includes short biographies of some of the world's most ardent supporters of peace and equality, from Anne Frank to Gandhi to Martin Luther King Jr. This picture book is perfect for elementary age children and can also be used creatively for middle school age children. Honor Book for Younger Children, 2012.
