Sharing Our Homeland

By Rutgers Project on Economics and Children

With its extensive narrative and action-packed photographs, this non-fiction children’s book provides an interesting glimpse of a bold experiment that encourages children to work toward peace in a region plagued by long-term conflict. Included in the text are some important lessons about the economic repercussions of conflict, including discrimination and barriers in traveling to work. This unique book will inform readers about the history of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute and encourage them to think about how children’s education can work toward conflict resolution.
