The Little Skyscraperby Scott Santoro
The little skyscraper didn't always seem so little. At one glorious time he was the tallest and most impressive building in the entire city. People traveled from near and far to take in the view from his observation deck and pass the time in his pretty little park. But as time passed and the city grew and grew, people forgot about the little skyscraper. His bright, shiny spire became dull and tarnished, and his beautiful park was turned into a parking lot. Then, just when his own future looked darkest, the little skyscraper learns that he hadn't been forgotten. And all it took was the determination of an old friend to change the minds of an entire city.

This is an excellent book for reminding each of us the importance of preserving those things from our past that enrich our lives today, that make us who we are. It is especially appropos given the unity and spirit that has been ignited among the American people by the World Trade Center incident. A heart-warming book in troubling times to read and share with young ones just beginning to learn life lessons!
