America is Under Attack: September 11, 2001 - The Day the Towers Fell

“In 102 minutes hijackers had destroyed the World Trade Center, crippled the Pentagon, and doomed four jet liners.  2,973 people were dead, more than the number of Americans killed at Pearl Harbor or on D-Day.  It was the largest loss of life on American soil as a result of a hostile attack.”

Graceful watercolor illustrations bring to life in an understated way the tragic events of the morning of September 11, 2001. Using simple illustrations, Don Brown puts human faces on the events of that fateful September morning when terrorist attacks claimed the lives of innocent citizens.  A great read for sharing Patriot’s Day  with grades 3-6, this will be a keeper for libraries and a comfort for those families personally touched by September 11, 2001.   64 pages
