This charming picture book offers a simple panacea for everyday transgressions children will be able to relate to: Peace, Baby. Written by Linda Ashman, illustrated by Joanne Lew-Vreihoff, the story depicts children on the playground, in the classroom, at home, during a game of dress-up  … in short, everywhere misunderstandings and hurt feelings can be found. “Peace to strangers on the street, Peace to bugs beneath your feet.”  There’s only one cookie and two of you? “Break it in half and you’ll have two. Peace, baby.” Simple, short phrases and cheerful illustrations make this rhyming book fun to read aloud. With any luck, the simple refrain will stick in the minds of young readers and be on the tips of their tongues the next time they run into a problem.
