Perspectives from a Mediator/Arbitrator

Children's Book Recommendation

I recently obtained a copy of William Kaplan's excellent children's story "One More Border". Bill is an arbitrator and mediator. He is also a prolific writer. He is also a friend of mine (best to admit your bias as an arbitrator before someone else brings it up)

The book tells the story of Bill's father as a boy leaving Lithuania with his family in 1939. Fleeing the Nazis, the story traces the journey of the family to Canada. I read it last night to my seven year old son who was absolutely gripped by it. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy, read it to a child and discuss the important issues raised.
