What Does Peace Feel Like? by Vladimir Radunsky
This book explores all the different meanings – and possibilities of meaning – of the word “peace” by inviting readers to imagine experiencing peace through the five senses. Rich paintings accompany sensory responses from “children just like you from around the world.” Beginning and ending with translations of “peace” into nearly 200 different languages, Radunsky artfully conveys the notion that all people have the creative power to envision - and construct – a more peaceful world by working together.
