Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let It Begin with Me
These cherished words have sounded a call for peace the world over since 1955. The song of the same name has echoed through schools and churches, community centers and summer camps, the White House, and meetings of the United Nations. It has touched hearts from South Africa to New Zealand, from Russia to Japan. "Let There Be Peace on Earth" has been recorded and performed by countless singers including Nat King Cole, Gladys Knight, Vince Gill, and many more.
Now available for the first time as a picture book, Jill Jackson and Sy Miller's lyrics have been beautifully interpreted by Caldecott Medal-winning artist David Diaz. Diaz's luminous illustrations, featuring peace symbols from many cultures, and a 12-track audio CD introduce this beloved song and its valuable message to a new generation.
