Dedicated to the spread of non-violence as a solution, Peace Pilgrim traveled 25,000 miles around the US delivering her message. This book would be a perfect addition to US history studies for middle grades and higher. Well written and inspiring.”
“Inspiring. This is a wonderful book for parents to share with their children. The life lessons within this extraordinary story are invaluable at any age. Thank you for the enjoyable story telling and the inspiration!”
“Peace Pilgrim Has Lessons for Everyone. Merry Brennan’s Peace Pilgrim biographical novel has insightful lessons for everyone at every age. The lessons of courage, respect, integrity, perseverance, and love in the quest for peace are readily understood and inspiring. The lessons are integral to the story and are not preachy. The readability level, which combines simple, straightforward language and highly interesting content, is perfectly tailored for ‘tweens and teens and could be easily integrated into a school’s regular or remedial curriculum. For us at the Jersey Shore, that interest is compounded by the depiction of an original Jersey Girl, just like its author.”
“Encouraging. Brennan makes a good case for the possible effect one person can have in a complicated world. This is an easily read but compelling story. Enjoy it!”
