What Price Peace?

A Teaching Resource for Primary Schools exploring issues of War and Peace

by Chris Hudson


Price: £8.99
Publisher:Barnabas imprint of BRF
Published:March 2014

This is a brilliant book, and though designed for use within a primary school setting and for a number of subjects—RE, PSHCE, Literacy & History—I would seriously recommend it to anyone wanting a resource dealing with 'The Great War' for children, or indeed all age groups.

The stories cover a range of people and topics dealing with War and Peace, and are perfectly suited not only for a school setting but could also be used without much difficulty in a sermon setting, I would think.

The book includes prayers, suggestions for activities, thoughts for the day, sketches, and a whole host more activities and ideas. They are divided between the age groups of 5-7 & 8-11, but can easily be taylored to work with an older group if required.

This is perfect school material, well formulated, planned, and set out—but I really think that many other groups and organisations, not just schools, would find real benefit in this book during this Centenery of the 1914-1918 War.
