A very interesting approach to the subject of war. In simple verse-like sentences Walker describes the beauty of this world, it' s people and animals and juxtaposes this beauty against the practice of war. Humanity's unity and interconnection with the environment is illustrated as war poisons the water we all share and are comprised of and must all drink together.

Some of the aphorisms are easily remembered. My favorite is:

"Though War speaks
Every language
It never knows
What to say
To frogs."

A more gentle way to explain war to children while getting the point across. Some things are left open-ended, allowing children to think for themselves and ask questions. A good book for first introducing the concept of war to young ones. I believe it would be good for children ages 5 and up.
