War: A Children’s Book
by Zachary Gallant

“War: A Children’s Book” is an educational peacemaking tool. When your child asks, “why is there war?” will you be ready with a real answer? This rhyming children’s book is a tool to help gently explain the terrifying phenomenon of war without continuing the cycle of fear and hate. It teaches children not just the root causes and effects of war, but also their own role in preventing future wars.

In the year after writing was complete, the text was edited dozens of times by an international community from every related field – from soldiers to teachers. Veterans edited alongside those who grew up in warzones. Psychologists working in Latin American orphanages edited alongside educators from US inner cities and most importantly: a lot of committed parents.
