Today marks the sixteenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. There are now several books for children about the topic: historical fiction as well as nonfiction.
Scholastic, the children’s publisher, put together a helpful resource page for adults to help children understand and process 9/11 as well as other general tough issues that are in the news, like war, violence, and natural disasters.
Your local independent booksellers and librarians are also good resources if you’d like help finding books to help with difficult discussions. It takes a village, and we’re here to help.
One response to “Resources for Talking with Kids about 9/11 and Other Tough Topics”
Seven and a Half Tons of Steel, about the USS New York, is a thoughtful and moving tribute and it’s a beautiful book.
