The concept behind this book is wonderful, a tribute from a mother who gave birth on Sept 11th, such a tragic day, that depicts one child from each of the 50 states who was also born on the same day.

As a parent of a child with a Sept. 11 birthday, one of these years she is going to find out that the day that she celebrates is a day that the nation considers a tragedy. I like this book as a tool for framing her life as part of a vision of hope.
