Everyone will remember what they were doing on 9/11. I know two special girls, one just starting second grade - like the girl in the book, who went to school on that morning. On that morning, they prayed for the innocent victims and heroes on that day. The poetry of this book reminded them, and will remind any reader, of an ordinary day that quickly turned into a day of shock and sadness. The story will also reinforce the memories from the weeks that followed when tales of heroism and love dominated the national news.
The book may prompt a parent-child discussion of the events of 9/11. Grade school children will enjoy the story, and parents will be touched by this remembrance’s expression of love, pride, gratitude, and loss.4 Stars
