my review

This was such a sweet, simple, yet worthwhile book to read. I feel that sometimes, even as an adult, I forget to look for the peace that’s all around. To read this children and get them in the mindset that there are wonderful things all around us will surely help them to grow as happy individuals, who can problem-solve and be joyful in life.

I loved the illustrations in this book. They were vibrant, realistic, and inviting. It was also great to see a range of ethnicities here. Our world is truly diverse, and yet we all are capable of showing the same emotions.

By reading I Can See Peace, adults can easily open up the topic of being happy and finding peace with their children. There is also a section where it raises the emotion of anger (even an illustration of where adults are yelling at each other and a child is off in the corner scared), and how people can use the breathing technique to calm down to help them feel better. I think it’s great to teach anger management skills in a subtle and easy-to-understand way as early as possible.

Overall, I really enjoyed this beautifully-illustrated children’s read and can see many children enjoying it, too!

My Rating5 stars


I would highly recommend this to all young children to read with their parents and/or teachers.
