Reading is one of the most important activities that you can encourage your children to do. It’s entertaining, thought provoking,

and absolutely critical to success later in life.

Books in the

Library for Peace

to Talk About:

The Purpose of Christmas.jpg

In his powerful yet compassionate voice, Pastor Rick Warren sounds the clarion call to “remember the reason for the season,” taking readers back in time to the most wonderful story of all—the birth of the baby Jesus.

Light the Lights.jpg

A delightful picture book captures the warmth of family tradition as Emma and her family celebrate two holidays--Hanukkah, a time to light the menorah and play dreidl games, and Christmas, a time to sing carols and open presents.

 

If You're Missing Baby Jesus.jpg

This true story by author Jean Gietzen will unwrap the warmth of the real meaning of Christmas. Charmingly illustrated by Lila Rose Kennedy, it is a gift to treasure and share and will remind you of the joy of giving, and touch the hearts of all who receive it.

Balthazra and Zeeba.jpg

Balthazar is one of the Three Wise Men from the East. Zeeba is his granddaughter. Let the fun begin. A holiday novella for all ages. Ideal for a cold winter’s night, with a glass of egg nog in one hand, and this book in the other.
