Product Excerpts and Related Resources


“It's a joy to see, page by page, how many places around the world and how many different movements this symbol came to influence, as it took on broader meanings of peace and acceptance. . . . The bright, colorful, detailed illustrations give us a sense of the great swelling of desire to create a livable, loving world.” —Spirituality & Practice

“A short, bright look at the history and proliferation of the peace symbol. . . . Highly worthy for any school that covers social justice, nuclear disarmament, the 1960’s or protest movements.” —Kiss the Book

“Offers a message of inspiration to today's children and adults who are working to create social change. . . . Entertaining, informative, and thoroughly 'kid friendly' in organization and presentation.”

Midwest Book Review

“The words and illustrations work symbiotically to show the peace symbol’s adoption around the world.” Englewood Review of Books

“Recounts the origins of the peace sign for a new generation of young activists. . . . Empowering.” —Publishers Weekly

“Vibrant throngs of all kinds of people fill the pages . . . Grounded in the discussion of a design, the heart of peace beats on.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Vibrant, layered protest scenes and moody evening skies seem lifted from the walls of an impressionist gallery in this picture book detailing the origins and enduring influence of the peace sign.” —Foreword Reviews
