that as one people we may live out your compassion and justice,
whole and sound in the realm of your peace.
***** Little Humans of New York, by Brandon Stanton published in 2014 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux In conjunction with his phenomenal photoblog and bestselling book, Brandon Stanton has released a pint-sized photobook for little humans.
Featuring some of his riveting street photos of children, the book is 95% photo, with just a line-at-a-time of simple verse running through it, reminding us of the joy and peace and growth that constitutes happy childhood. The diversity of his subjects is the highlight for me. We all want our children to live compassionately and justly with one another, to embrace with peace and joy the diversity they see about them, and serve the common good. Enjoying together the lives and faces featured in this book is a little step in the right direction. Ages 18 months and up.
