Peace and Me: Inspired by the Lives of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Hardcover – Picture Book
What does peace mean to you?
This beautifully-illustrated collection of inspirational ideas about peace is based on the lives of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates of the 20th and 21st centuries, among them Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa and Malala Yousafzai.
A must for anyone interested in exploring this essential issue of our times, this child-friendly exploration of what peace means to you and me is a book for every bookshelf.
Amnesty International endorses this book because it shows how standing up for other people makes the world a better, more peaceful place.
“This book is full of people who have striven to improve the lives of others and have consequently left a legacy years after their death. This is a brilliant book for anyone who loves discovering more about important figures in history”―BookTrust

We love it because
LANTANA: "We believe that the importance of reading for pleasure cannot be overstated. A combination of academic research, empirical study and common sense shows that when children identify with books - their settings, themes or characters - they are more likely to enjoy reading them. At Lantana, we’re proud to publish books in which a greater number of children can see themselves reflected, because our books feature characters from under-represented and marginalised groups who are rarely the main characters in stories. This way, we hope to ignite the spark that will grow into a lifelong love of reading."
