This heartfelt book is a beacon of hope - the wisdom of children is truly profound.
Age: Preschool-1st gradeWritten and illustrated by a first-grade class in Kennett, Missouri, these children reflect on how the world remains the same after September 11th. Even though bad things did happen, good things continue to happen.May be more for the enjoyment of adults because kids may not want to see pictures that other kids drew or hear a story that other kids wrote. May be good as a supplemental story but not by itself. What about the people in New York whose lives really were changed...

September 12 is a book about September 11, 2001 from the perspective of first graders. It talks about even though bad things happen, things were still going to be okay. I really enjoyed reading about this tragic event through the eyes of elementary students. Even though they didn't know exactly what happened, they knew it was really bad. But, they also knew things could still be good in life. I also really liked how they talked about the unity of Americans on September 12. I think it's really aw...

This book was beautiful. It was written by a class of first graders following the attack on 9/11. It is meant to be encouraging and full of hope. The simple wording and thoughts of children is a powerful thing. The illustrations were also done by the students and they were haunting in a way. It was very cool to be able to see this event through the eyes and ears of a child. I loved this book. I would probably read it on 9/11 to talk about a community and country coming together as one.
Beautiful example of how teachers can turn bad events into meaningful moments in children's lives.
Great book to share with kids after talking about 9/11
September 12th We Knew Everything Would Be All Right is written and illustrated by a class of first-graders of H. Byron Masteron Elementary in Kennett Missouri. Their book is about the day after the tragic events of September 11. It is about the class finds comfort in things that remained the same, such as recess, homework, 2+2=4, and parents that reminded them that they are loved. They wrote about how the world continues on and eventually everything would be all right. I think this is so sweet
The book September 12 is written and illustrated by the Masterson Elementary Students. The book, written about the day after September 11, 2001, shows how the students in the 1st classroom knew the world was going to be all right. They knew this because their daily schedule went back to normal, their parents still tucked them into bed, and they still had homework. Even though this book does touch on such a dark event in our history, the book has themes such as hope and comfort. I would give this...
September 11th was a tragic day, but the the next day still came. The world didn't stop turning because humans are resilient. The day went on just like any other, but this first grade class felt a little more pride in their country. Like the children that wrote this book, I was also in 1st grade when the plains crashed into the Twin Towers. I wish we had had this kind of outlet to really process and understand what happened on this day. I remember it being very confusing, but an activity like th...
"September 12th We Knew Everything Would Be All Right" is a book written by a group of classmates right after 9/11. This book displays how the day after the twin towers where hit that everything would be alright, everyone was scared, parents, teachers, kids, etc. Every citizen of the United States came together on September 12th and said everything will be alright. If I could give this book 50 stars I would, this book shows the true emotion of what kids went through during that scary time and it...
September 12th: We Knew Everything Would Be Allright is on my favorites book shelf because history cannot be forgotten. The work is written and illustrated by 1st grade students.

In the reading classroom, teachers could use this story on September 11th, to teach about what happened that day in a more history literac...
For someone who was a kid when September 11th happened, this book resonated with me. I think this is a great book to explain the unity that happened after September 11th. The world changed and kids saw a lot of ugly that day, but they also saw the world come together and the United States felt a little smaller as the nation bonded over the tragedy.
This book was written and illustrated by children. It is such a inspiring book, it shows young minds perspective of the horrific events that occurred on September 11th. This book shows that every thing will be alright because life moves on.
A group of 1st graders created this book to let everyone know that everything would be alright after the World Trade Center attack. First, the sun came up on the 12th and then the kids routine remained the same.
This book was a recollection of a tragic time in United States history, that was turned light hearted by the students in that time period. The pictures drawn by the students were adorable and depicted their vision of the event on 9/11. Overall an amazing book with great ideas.
Picture book. Written by children about how they coped with the tragedy of 9/11. Fun childlike illustrations.
A good way to talk about hard things that happen with kids. Loved the story and what this teacher did!
Great for the classroom!
This is a great story of how these students felt after 9/11/2001. The story and illustrations will touch your heart.
Written by a class of first graders after the events of 9-11-2001 to focus on the good people and things around us, and how we could move forward after that tragic day.
A great way to begin the conversation about the attack on America on September 11th.
This book is good way to introduce this difficult topic to young children.
an uplifting story about being positive the day after 9/11... written by first graders who actually experienced 9/11 and wrote about the next day
I have read this to my classes every year since 2012. It is comforting and totally awesome to share with children. The authors are 26 now, 20 years after the awful events ❤️🇺🇸❤️
Picture BookA sweet and beautiful message about hope after tragedy. I would definitely use this when talking with students about 9/11.
Tears streamed from my eyes the moment I began reading this beautifully handwritten book by the first grade students of Masterson Elementary School in Missouri a day after the tragic events of September 11th. The events of 9/11 may seem like a distant memory, but being able to read about the aftermath of such moments through the perspective of these children can’t help but give the reader a sense of hope in a time of distress.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwZI...This is a story that begins a
