September 11, 2001 was a day many will never forget. Each year on 9/11 Americans and people all over the world pause to remember those lost and honor the heroes and survivors of the tragic event. Many children know little (if anything) about the tragic events of that day. As they watch 9/11 ceremonies and hear stories, they may have questions. These books can help introduce, explain, and facilitate conversations about 9/11. As always, choose books appropriate for the child in your life. Preview the books and be prepared for tough questions and maybe even a little sadness.

You can pick these books up at your local library or purchase them using our Bookshop Bookstore Link. Click on the book cover to be directed to our Bookshop September 11 Book List.
