    E-book: A Child for Peace

    Text: Solveig Hansen

    The IFLAC Children’s Peace Train Poetry Festival 2014, a joint project between IFLAC and Children’s Peace Train, was a success. We asked children to write a poem about “Peace in My Own Life” and create a drawing if they liked. The prize was to have their poems published in an e-book. Here it is! 84 entries from children and teens between the age of 4 and 19. All continents represented. 144 pages.

    The beautiful cover illustration is created by Isabella Wallace (9) from Australia, one of the participants. It shows war trapped in a jar, after peace has been let out.

    Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments field. We and the children would love to hear from you.

    The e-book is available in two formats for you to download, read online and share:

    PDF book – for downloading

    2. What a delightful thought provoking collection of Children’s Peace train poetry! Each poem and picture is beautiful. Hope we all can learn something precious from our children about cherished value of life. Heartfelt thanks to you Solveig and IFLAC team.. . .


      • Thank you, Bill. The poems and pictures are indeed a perfect match. I hope our readers will share the book with others to help spread it far and wide. It is a beautiful book with wise words from childrens perspective. They put a lot of thoughts and hard work into their poems. We need to hear their voices.
