Summary: Twelve Nobel Peace Prize winners are profiled, along with the man who started it all, Alfred Nobel. Winners are presented in chronological order, beginning with Jean Henry Dunant in 1901 and finishing with Malala Yousafzai in 2014. Some will likely be familiar to kids (Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela), while others are less well known (Fridtjof Nansen, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, Shirin Ebadi). The first two pages show an interesting timeline, with each person’s name and year shown on a sailboat on the Pacific Ocean. The last two have a world map showing the country of origin for each recipient. 32 pages; grades 1-5.
Pros: An interesting and important collection of people for kids to know about. The collage-style illustrations are fascinating, with lots of details to notice. Kids will enjoy finding the girl on the cover who appears in every one.
Cons: Only 12 of the many interesting recipients are profiled.
