Short stories of nonviolence and reconciliation from the lives of real people capture the excitement of action, the joy of seeing from new perspectives, and the encouragement of witnessing small acts that make big differences. Artwork by children ages 6-20 from Chechnya, Russia, and around the world illustrate each story. They call us to pay attention to “those tiny, invisible, molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual through the crannies of the world.” “This collection of stories for children speak of loving-kindness and sympathy. Such kindness is needed wherever cruelty predominates, so that it can surpass cruelty a hundred times over, and help consign it to oblivion.” —Musa Akhmadov, Chechen writer. “In these dangerous times we can all be encouraged to be active, by reading this book. Hooray for all the people, young and old, in widely separated parts of the world, who have cooperated to put it together.” —Pete Seeger, folk singer.
