nine, ten: A September 11th Story

Nine, Ten: A September 11 Story - Nora Raleigh Baskin


This book follows four children from diverse backgrounds in the days leading up to the attacks on September 11, 2001, their experiences that day, and where they are one year later. Rather than focusing on the horrific events of the day, the book instead focuses on the children's individual lives, dealing with everyday issues, including mourning the death of a parent, fitting in with peers, and moving to a new school. It is a good book to read aloud to a class to spark discussions of the events of the day and how they changed our world.
