Talking about tough subjects is a delicate balance with young students. How much information do they need to answer their questions? How much is too much? These picture books approach the story of that day and the recovery efforts of the city and the nation in a positive light. By focusing on the "survivor tree" and on the National 9/11 Flag, the narratives can provide some distance from the negative emotions and direct readers to look at what has been accomplished since that day.
