E-book: A Child for PeacePosted: 2014/11/13
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:
