Book Thoughts by Rachelle
I picked up September 12th at my kids elementary school Scholastic Book Fair years ago and began flipping through it. After the first couple pages, I was swallowing my tears. After buying the book, I felt a little anxious about reading it to my kids. I thought about what I might say, what questions they might have about that fateful day–September 11, 2001.
I am so glad I bought this book. What a wonderful experience it was for me and my children and it’s a great book to revisit at this time.
Here’s more about the book:
Heartfelt and touching book by 1st graders at Masterson Elementary School in Kennet, Missouri, about the day after the tragic events of September 11th. These students were given a commemorative Sept
On September 11th horrific events occurred, yet through the simple text and vibrant art of first graders, we are reminded that the world continued the next day. On each page, children experience the comforts of ordinary routines, such as their teacher reading books to them, having homework and recess, and knowing that 2 + 2 still equals 4. This is a poignant message of hope that reassures us all that even after bad things happen, tomorrow always brings a new day.
