World-Changing Kids Reading List: OK guys, out of all the picture books that we have borrowed from the Ottawa Public Library in 2018, this is my absolute favourite. This book has the most beautiful message of peace and it shares it in so few words. The words are used so perfectly to express this message of peace, no word is wasted, no extra words are added. It is perfect. The illustrations by Serge Bloch are also perfect. The soldier talks about being taught that the “enemy” is a monster, but then he learns that the “enemy” is actually quite similar to him. I will not say any more because I don’t want to ruin it for you. I think every child should have this book in their collection. If we can plant the truth that we are all more the same than we are different in our children’s heads from the beginning, I think they will make decisions that will lead to peace instead of war when they are the future leaders.
