This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book is very sad and inspiring. With everything going on in our lives and we say we have a hard time or had a bad day, is nothing compared to what these amazing people went through and saw the goodness. Everybody in this book went through a dark time amid still found the light. This book really inspired me to want to do more with my community and to help others. I chose this book because I needed a book to read and a short book to read.
Yes I would, this book may not apply to you or you may This book is very sad and inspiring.
Yes I would, this book may not apply to you or you may not have any connections to the people in any way. But I found this book very encouraging and heartfelt, it's like these people came into the world at the exact right time, when everybody needed them. My favorite part of this book is probably Dorothy Day and her story about how she protested with all the other women outside the Whitehouse and stuck up for what she believed in.
If I could change anything in this book is that I would add more about how the died and abut their childhood for all of them. And maybe explain what some of the things were because I was so confused on some of the organizations and a lot of their names- how to pronounce their names exactly. A important lesson I learned in this book is that you can never do to much. And that when you are having a bad day, look up to these people and think "Wow! These people have probably been threatened and beaten for what they believe in and you can't even do this!?!?
Sometimes the most damaged people are the wisest people and that through all the darkened and hatred in the world today, 1 person can change it all if we just cling to hope like they did for us. Aug 25, Crystal rated it really liked it Shelves: young-non-fiction , biography , peace.
Review copy from Netgalley It is nice to see a book focusing on people who are heroes based on something other than physical strength or celebrity. Readers quickly see that these are strong individuals who worked for change through influence. There were many commonalities with these six people as they made incredible change happen without violence.
Peace Warriors (Profiles Series #6)
These were some amazing heroes. I do wish that we saw a bit more of their foibles though. In a biography, I like to see that a person is definitely not Review copy from Netgalley It is nice to see a book focusing on people who are heroes based on something other than physical strength or celebrity.
In a biography, I like to see that a person is definitely not perfect because then they seem more real. Also, when I can see their everyday issues, then their deeds seem more attainable for a common person. That said, it is still incredibly inspirational.
It encourages that spirit of working for peace because readers will see how much one voice can do. It might be nice to have students find people who have something distinct in common like this. Pinkney's narrative is interesting and full of rich detail. I especially appreciated learning about Dorothy Day and Ellen Sirleaf Johnson, two women I was unfamiliar with before reading this book. I will be happy to add Peace Warriors to our collection.

The idea behind this Profiles series is that there are connections among many of the individuals typically associated with various movements for change. All of this can lead to worldwide change. Each biography describes the childhood, family life, major accomplishments, and the ways in which their lives had impact on each other.
Noble Peace Prize-winner Sirleaf, for instance, president of Liberia, was the first woman to be elected as president of an African country. Her concern about the rights of women and the impoverished helped her win the election. Pacificist Dorothy Day spent her entire life working for equality for everyone and was particularly concerned about the plight of the homeless and unemployed. The stories, accompanied by photographs, enable readers to glimpse what these six inspiring and dedicated men and women have contributed to the world.

I like the idea of being warriors for peace, a cause worth fighting for, but through words and deeds. Feb 22, Mya rated it really liked it. I thought this book was a pretty good book. I liked how it told about the people's past. The book had tons of information on her. I thought that was neat. My favorite part of the book was when they talked about Dorothy Day. She helped the poor, homeless people and protested that women should have equal rights.
She even had a kitchen named after her. Homeless and poor people would go there to get the meal I thought this book was a pretty good book.

This is a wonderful compilation of six of the most influential seekers of peace in recent times. The detail with which they are presented is striking--from their early life to the profound work they are known for accomplishing. It is written in a simple format but does have a fair number of challenging words. Pictures of these people are helpful, but I would not recommend it to a reluctant reader.
