Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With beautifully simple illustrations and words, Andrea Patel confronts the tragedy of September 11 in a way that leaves young children with a sense of hope in tomorrow. At the beginning, the effort to fit the events of September 11 into the consciousness of the very young does lean toward simplistic, planting the seed for later misperceptions. "...one day a terrible thing happened. The world, which had been blue and green and bright and very big and really round and pretty peaceful, got badly hurt." It was really America that was badly hurt on that one day; other people and places in the world are getting badly hurt every day. Even young children can begin to understand that the world does not—or should not—revolve around America's hurts alone. The ultimate message, however, is strong and true and practical. Children are told that even though bad things happen, "there will always be good things in the world, too. You are one of those good things." Children are encouraged to share, play and laugh, take care of the Earth, and be kind to people. The spare but bright, imaginative tissue paper collages—like a smear of red and later a smiling face on the cool green and blue of the Earth—could even be recreated by children to express their own emotions. 2002, Tricycle Press,

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-How does one address the attacks of September 11, 2001, in a picture book for young children? Patel's efforts to make her own peace with the subject have resulted in a book that does so quite effectively. Her tissue-paper collages depict, at first, a world that is "very big, and really round, and pretty peaceful." The white expansive backgrounds allow viewers to focus completely on the images and message. The author goes on to explain that "sometimes bad things happen because people act in mean ways and hurt each other on purpose." (Even preschoolers know this to be true.) The accompanying scene is simply a collage outline of America. Patel then offers a variety of ways that children, or anyone, could help the world: sharing, playing and laughing, taking care of the Earth, and being kind. Concluding pages point to the strength of the goodness that exists; listeners are reminded that they are part of that. Short sentences build into longer, cumulative lines; this repetition plugs into a familiar, oral tradition, while providing reinforcement for the ideas. Both this textual pattern and the circular, connected lines of the art break at the delivery of the terrible news. They resume, subtly, in the denouement. This book will be welcomed by those who want to mark the anniversary of the tragedy with children; it is worth noting that it would also be useful to open a dialogue in the context of any violent act.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
