This book explains the events and lasting impact of September 11, 2001. Many aspects of the attacks are covered, including who planned them and when planning originally started, where the multiple attacks on 9/11 took place, how rescue workers responded on that day, and the reactions of people living around the world. This book is split up into short chapters, and each page is dedicated to a specific bit of information.

This is a great book to use to teach kids about the 9/11. The

Thousands of people were killed on this day. It is also known as t ...more
