Shelley Harwayne, New York (City) Board of Education. Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, the children of New York City have lived with images - and most of all personal losses - unimaginable until then. This inspiring book brings together letters, poems and artwork by children from New York City and across the country in response to the tragedy.

by Shelley Harwayne and New York (City) Board of Education .

Some New York City students drew stacks of plaintive pictures to express how they felt about the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center. Others wrote poems - some disconsolate, some determinedly optimistic.

Shabazz plans to use her school's book, Disaster Through the Eyes Of a Child, as the centerpiece for conversations with the student authors and artists. During this forum, I hope to have the students understand tolerance, diversity, and respect for all races," Shabazz told Education World. I want them to understand that because a few people made a bad decision to cause 9/11, we must not blame others. Students also must look to the future.

The book serves as "a great big thank you to all the teachers who had their children write to our children," Ms. Harwayne says. It is also a window into the hearts and minds of some of the children most directly affected by the attacks. I think in some respects, although could be jolting, it can be healing in the end," she says.

I teach 2nd grade and I read this book and went though it with my students on September 11th. A lot of younger kids now do not know what September 11th was and have a hard time understanding. This book was created by kids in response to 9/11 and helps kids today understand what happened.
If you are looking at this for a lesson look at September 12th: We knew everything would be all right. I read this to my class on September 12th as a follow up.

I bought this a year ago to use in my enrichment program at an elementary school. It was loved so much by the kids I left it there when I transferred to another school. I know the kids at this school will love it too so I ordered more than one now! Beautifully written by the children who experienced 9/11 first hand. A must have to honor this day every year for our country and a very teachable moment book.

this is an amazing book, written BY children for adults and children. a story of survival, pressing on, forgiving. my students race to check it out of my class library, and they treasure a turn to keep it in their book boxes for the week.

Among those most traumatized by the incomprehensible events of September 11, 2001, were schoolchildren. Even out in New Jersey, where I was teaching at the time, the deepest emotions came from the children. Part of the emotional healing for schoolchildren in New York City and across the nation was to be able to express their feelings and thoughts in poetry, story, and artwork. This fine book contains letters of various types, in prose, poetry, and accompanied by illustrations. The remainder of the book is divided into themes: 911 - the emergencies of September 11, 2001; the heroes - those who came to the rescue and others who volunteered afterward; why - trying to comprehend how and why the tragedy happened, or could happen; where we were on that fateful day; reaching out to those directly affected by the destruction of 9/11; voices of hope - as expressed by peace, love, and understanding; and the pledge "We will never forget." Indeed, anyone reading the words and artwork, will not forget the tragedy, as expressed in the honest and heartfelt ways unique to the child.
