BookKids: Anniversary of September 11th

Return to Previous Page

The anniversary of 9/11 this past weekend reminded all of us of how that day changed our country. And it made many parents and educators reach for books to help talk to kids about what this tragedy was, what it meant--and how it brought people together in some ways and divided us in others. Here are some of the books we think might round out the conversation of what exactly happened 20 years ago and the ways that day still influences our present.
