What is peace?

The question needs our attention and, more than that, needs our practice.

Best friends Slug and Snail are here to remind young readers that it is important to practice peace in our lives, in our spirits, and in our communities. 

"There are things we can do
to have peace every day
when we're outside,
in our home, or at play."

Mollusk Besties

In Slug and Snail Search for Peace, the mollusk duo returns to the page for a delightful exploration of peace as demonstrated through the animal realm. Slug and Snail affirm our common desire for peace as they encourage us to change the world one day at a time!

"Although we are different
we all belong in this place.
There's room for everyone
when we make the space."

When their journey through the animal world ends, Slug and Snail invite readers to identify peace in action, sharing creative activities and simple practices to focus on peace.

Have you read Slug and Snail Search for Home?

The first journey of Slug and Snail was a discovery of belonging, as the two friends toured nests and dams, mountains and mounds.

“With beautiful illustrations and lovely text, Meredith Gould and Rebecca Manfredini invite us to journey with new friends [as] they soon discover what already existshome is not a building or structure we find to place over ourselves but an awareness that we are an integral part of all creation."

Gary Alan Shockley, Sammie's Flat Dog
