Anti-War Book List

I love finding great book lists online, and this is one of them!  Weapons of Mass Instruction is a collection of anti-war books done on a wiki, so you can add any titles that you think should be part of the list.  Browse through titles by age, Spanish and Japanese titles, graphic novels, manga, and links to other online resources. 

Boy, we should be doing this for all sorts of booklists.  I love the wiki idea where we can pool together our knowledge of children’s literature.  Beware, the gears in my head are turning!
