In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
The Cellist of Sarajevo
In the children's picture book, Echoes from the Square by Elizabeth Wellburn and illustrated by Deryk Houston (Rubicon Publishing, 1998), a young boy is helped to cope with war by Vedran Smailovic's actions.
For adults, an article by Swati Chopra on the Life Positive e-magazine website provides more detail about Vedran Smailovic and the responses to his actions. An ACF Newsource article describes the projects Jason Crowe, a teen in Indiana, undertook, inspired by Vedran Smailovic.
Although written for younger children, a picture book by Cheryl Willis Hudson may inspire the group with illustrations of children bending their bodies to form the letters of the alphabet: Afro-Bets ABC Book (East Orange, NJ: Just Us Books, 1988; Cartwheel, 2002).
