I loved reading all of these poems. These are poems written by war survivors like children and soldiers and even some poetry by famous authors like Langston Hughes.

Music and Drum: Voices of War and Peace, Hope and Dreams is beautifully illustrated. The images on each page fit perfectly behind the message of the poems. This collection of poems that reveal the pain of violence/war and the hope/joy children find in times of peace.
