What does peace smell like? What does it taste like? Feel, sound or look like? Through Sensing Peace, children ages 4 to 7 are encouraged to see what peace looks, sounds, feels, tastes and smells like in their everyday moments—things like laughing, cooking, gardening, singing or sharing ice cream.
Through this encouraging and delightful story, children will realize that peace isn’t something big out there that only adults can know about—they already experience and create peace in meaningful ways each day.
“Peace is the feeling of having a safe place to live and a warm place to rest. Peace feels like everyone having enough, no one too little and no one too much. It’s the feeling of full tummies for all the world’s children, the smell of summer barbecues and picnics, block parties and neighborhood gatherings waftingthrough the street—bidding all neighbors to come, eat, share, and be together.”—Suzana E.
