Children's LiteratureOne volume in the 'Witness to History' series, this look back at the infamous day of September 11, 2001, retells in timeline fashion the events of the day and reactions to it. Many students were too young to comprehend the scope of events that took place that day, thus this book allows older elementary and middle school students the opportunity to revisit those tragic events to try and make meaning of them. The text is filled with personal stories of peoples' experiences that day. Leaders and citizens alike give emotional, often eyewitness testimony. Of course, the color photos of actual events surrounding the tragedy bring the enormity of the events to life, once again. Overall, the balanced view of the text helps readers of all ages place the events of September 11 into some context in their own lives. A glossary and index are included. 2003, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 12.
