Elsie, the Itty-Bitty "Peacemaker"
By: Peggy Schultz
About the Book
Elsie is a fluffy, floppy-eared bunny who lives in the barnyard of the Browning farm in the beautiful Mission Valley in St. Ignatius in northwestern Montana. Elsie has a big heart and loves everyone in the barnyard, but most of all, she is a peacemaker. The tales shared in this delightful book can be sad but mostly end up funny as Elsie helps her friends. Children can learn that we can all be peacemakers, no matter how old or how young, whether it is at home, school, with co-workers, or with family. What would the community be like, if everyone tried to be peacemakers every day!
