9/11, explained

A new kids' book offers straightforward facts and illustrations that aren't too scary for young readers.
With its publication timed to the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist tragedies, "America Is Under Attack" (Roaring Brook Press, $16.99) is a new book for kids from author-illustrator Don Brown.

Most grown-ups will likely never forget where they were on September 11, 2001.

But as the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks approaches, it’s startling to think there’s already a generation of kids who either weren’t around or were too young to remember it. An accessible introduction comes from America Is Under Attack by Don Brown (Roaring Brook Press, $16.99), which offers straightforward facts—including the personal experiences of police, firefighters and World Trade Center workers—in a measured tone and watercolor images that aren’t too scary for elementary-age readers.
