A recent storytime at the Watertown (MA) Free Public Library began, as usual, with a song, followed by a “stand up, sit down” exercise to help the kids settle in. Children read from Don and Audrey Wood’s iconic picture book The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear. But then came a digital twist.

Claudia M. Reder's curator insight, February 4, 7:22 PM

Storytelling's main uses in peace education is to teach empathy. Can empathy be taught? We can experience empathy- and learn ho walk in another's shoes, but I'm not sure how much is taught only through books. We also need to acquire peacemaking skills.
