KIRKUS REVIEW

Though published for the Junior Literary Guild, this book deserves to reach a wide adult market of readers concerned in youth and the goal of world unity and peace. An example of perfect collaboration, the book combines the intimate knowledge of the goals and ramifications of the UN (on the part of Mrs. Roosevelt) and the skillful selectivity and editorial judgment and attention to those details of fitting text and pictures for which Helen Ferris is noted. The finished book is a perfect tribute to the fifth birthday of UN -- heartening book in its recognition of the scope of achievement. Here, in human terms, is told the story of some of the vast achievements for which U.N. in its many ramifications is responsible, told in terms of youth everywhere, youth in need of receiving sustenance. Sustenance not only in nourishing food, in shelter, in schools, in books, in new ways of life. But sustenance in restored faith that childhood and youth have a place in the world. The stories of children brought back to their families; of homes reestablished; of the bridge of friendship between schools and libraries in untouched countries and the youth in the shattered war-torn world.
