Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Peg Glisson
Of all the disasters in Bearport's "Code Red" series, the World Trade Center attack probably elicits the most emotion from modern-day readers. Greene's succinct recounting of the events of September 11, 2001 focuses mostly on the fall of the twin towers, although she does briefly mention events at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. While avoiding sensationalism, she details the horrific impact of the attack on the people in the buildings and those who came to their aid. Her inclusion of some quiet heroes adds dignity to this account of the events. Osama bin Laden is mentioned both in the text and as the subject of one of the profiles at the end of the book, but the tone is matter-of-fact rather than sensational. Dramatic photos and quotes, along with informative fact boxes, add to the reader's understanding of not only what happened but the impact on our nation as we moved forward and honored the dead. The Iraq War is not mentioned as a consequence of 9/11. As with the other books in this series, the brief text is augmented by profiles of four people involved in some way, a glossary, an index, and a list of suggested readings and websites, all of which are age-appropriate. There is enough here for young researchers, yet the book is also suitable for use with older reluctant or struggling readers. Reviewer: Peg Glisson
