Books for Children

Grandmothers against War recommends two excellent websites for children's book recommendations  related to peace and social justice.


From the Cooperative Children's Book Center, a library of the University of Wisconsin School of Education, comes 50 Books about Peace and Social Justice,  While the list includes picture books, many of the recommendations are aimed at older children and young adults.
