Recommended Reads:
Peace by Wendy Anderson Halperin. The School Library Journal said "A beautiful book with rich watercolor artwork. Most of the paintings are spreads in a nontraditional layout, with sections sometimes divided into shapes by the meandering text. The book is about peace and how it can be achieved: in the world, in the country, in the city, in one's school, and within oneself. Many quotes from various people are included, with a running narrative on each page, beginning with "For there to be peace in the world...," on the first page, followed by "...there must be peace in nations" on the next. Each spread incorporates the words of others to support the running circular narrative." (Everyone section)

Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown. Mr. Tiger is tired of being like everyone else. Can the citizens in his town learn to accept change or will Mr. Tiger be on his own? (Everyone Section)

When he does, he is devastated to find that everyone except his grandmother has died of smallpox. He, along with his grandmother and one of his friends, finds shelter with another tribe, and as they settle in he has his first encounter with local Pilgrims.
