Playing War by Kathy Beckwith


----------------------------------------

About the book:
*from Publisher's site*

One hot summer day Luke and his friends decide to play their favorite game of war, using sticks for guns and pine cones for bombs and grenades. When a new child in the neighborhood hesitates to join in and then tells them he has been in a real war in the country where he used to live, the other children start to see their game in a new light.

Lea Lyon's fluid, expressive watercolors capture the action and the emotion of this story, where friendship and kindness prevail.



Kathy Beckwith trains student mediators, volunteers as a mediation coach at schools, and works as a mediator in her community. She lives with her family on a country road in western Oregon.
