Andrea Patel created a book that explains that sometimes bad things happen but the world is not completely broken and there is hope. A great message for wee little ones who have questions about events that are difficult to explain and understand.

The illustrations were made with tissue paper which emphasizes that this book was intended to be shared with young preschool-aged children.

I feel that the author's message is important for all children to learn. Not everyone is good, some people are bad

I love this book. It is wonderful in the way that it explains what happened on 9-11 in terms for children.

This is a nice resource for parents/educators teaching their children about the events of September 11th; sending a lovely message of hope and rebuilding.

Even for the target age group, this is a simplistic book that doesn't really do much to inform nor educate. It seems to have been written by (and was) someone who is not versed in writing for children. It comes off as being saccharin for what the author thinks that parents want to believe about their children.

Its intent is good, and the author's heart may be in the "right place", but it falls short of what it seems it is trying to do.

I remember feeling the way that this author felt after 9/11 and I remember looking for some solid footing. This is a simple book, really simple, but I totally get that.

A bok about September 11th for children. Great collage pictures, and goes over ways an individual can prevent hate.

I love that this book focuses on hope. It is very simple but beautiful. Plus, I love torn paper illustrations.
