Children's LiteraturePart of the "Events That Shaped America" series, this book describes the terrorist problem, the specific attacks on September 11th, and the impact that those attacks had on America. The text is clear and easy for young readers to understand. The authors highlight many of the difficult words and define them in a glossary. The book also includes an index, a time line, a list of further information, and a list of things to "think about and do." The suggested activities include learning about multiple religions, writing as if you were a survivor of the attacks, and speculating on how to deal with conflicts. These are good activities to write and think about, but they are not classroom "hands on" types of activities. The book also has a lot of color pictures and maps to help readers understand the key people, places, and concepts surrounding the attacks. The pictures are appropriate for younger readers. This is a good resource for readers wanting to understand this important "event that shaped America." 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.
