ALA’s Association for Library Service to Children just published a new and timely booklist that I thought many of you might want to know about. You can read their announcement of the booklist, including the book titles, below or on their blog<http://www.alsc.ala.org/blog/2016/11/children-deserve-kindness/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+AlscBlog+%28ALSC+Blog%29>.

Please “reply all” to recommend other books about unity, kindness, and peace for children.—Thanks, Katie
