International Day of Nonviolence

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
~ Mohandas Gandhi

October 2 marks both the birth of Gandhi and the UN's International Day of Nonviolence. We will likely head over to a nearby town for a peace walk but before then I want to do a bit more reading and research with my children on both topics.

Here are some of the resources I've found:

Gandhi: the young protester who founded a nation by Philip Wilkinson, Gandhi by Demi
Jadyn and the Magic Bubble: I Met Gandhi by Brigitte Benchimol
Paths to peace : people who changed the world by Jane Bresking Zalben,
Gandhi (DVD with Ben Kingsley)

The war by Anais Vaugelade, (one of our favourites about choosing non-violence)

Institute for Peace and Justice which has pledges of nonviolence for children of various ages.
