War and Peace
in Children's Literature

This bibliography was developed in response to numerous teacher requests for assistance with curriculum tie-in books, especially as related to tolerance.

This bibliography was compiled with the help of Janet Zarem, author Sara Jane Boyers, author Carol Flynn Hararis, author Katie Davis, author Annette Simon, Laura Tillotson of Book Links, Kathy Malu, Tracy van Straaten of Simon & Schuster, and M. Williams of Waterboro Public Library. We are temporarily bending our rule of listing only books we have reviewed ourselves to include some suggested by others in the children's literature community. Books we have read and reviewed ourselves are noted as such.
