Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Peace Warriors

Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber

This book is about people from the NZ and also the world who have stood up for what they believe in in a non-violent way. For example, a village in France saved thousands of Jews from being killed during WWII. This is an inspiring book about real people. It would be a great resource for my school.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Peace Warriors

Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber

This book is about people who fight against war in a peaceful way. These are people who have said ‘no’ and have saved many lives. I liked this book as I really enjoy non-fiction and I learnt a lot about brave people. Children 8+ would also like to read this book.

Kids’ Club Review by molly: Peace Warriors

Peace Warriors, by Raymond Huber

A book about real people who do not want to fight with violence they want to fight with peace and save lives. I liked this book because it was about brave people and some of them were women. The stories were interesting. I think children 10+ would enjoy this book as well as teachers.

Samoan Heroes, by David Riley

This nonfiction book is about heroes that are Samoan. It includes neuroscientists, rugby players, and basketball players. Some of the stories were really interesting although others I found a bit hard to read. Children who like nonfiction may like this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: Samoan Heroes

Samoan Heroes, by David Riley

Samoan Heroes is a non fiction book about heroes that are Samoan. Heroes are people who have done really well at something like sport or psychology. I thought this book would be good for school. It is not the usual book I read, though. I rated it 3 stars.
