About the Book:
Within the story of an everyday child’s game is entwined one of the most important messages of life: the benefits in conducting pleasant dialogue.
Oliver, a sweet child, is playing together with his friends in their apartment building’s yard, imagining themselves as builders. The children construct a wall, much to the anger of the landlord from whom Oliver’s parents are renting. He demands that the children immediately dismantle their structure and go somewhere else to play.
Oliver’s Dad reads him a story which enlightens Oliver’s thoughts. He comes up with a plan which may soften the landlord’s heart and defer his ultimatum. Oliver implements the moral of his father’s story and brings the landlord around to encouraging the children’s play!
The Torch of Peace is a charming and valuable tool for all children… and perhaps for adults too!
