   My son loved this book
My son loved it, Rosalyn said. Only in the past few weeks have we seen any improvement in the Call2 numbers, although it does not qualify for AR points. He also learned a lot about 911, the rescue mission and the purpose of the call. I like the way the tragedy and vicious attack was told in a way that he could understand. It also opened up for some questions he asked me and started a conversation, he said.

   Grateful for a text that allowed me to have a necessary but complicated conversation with my son
PowerPoint is a popular presentation tool used by teachers and students. The illustrious histories of these New York landmarks, whose contemporary legacies are so complicated and tragic, are dealt with by a deft hand, providing the necessary information for my rather astute 9-year-old while not scaring him. This book, read independently, allowed me the opportunity to hear my son's voice and to hear some of his fears. Brand new clothes are just what I needed.

   Well Written, Age Appropriate History of The World Trade Center
My daughter, who is now an adult, visited the twin towers a number of times as a child and had a very hard time with what happened there in 2001. At the time, she weighed just a few pounds and said it was an over-load. It's important for children to know what the twin towers were and why they are an important piece of history, but the information has to be presented properly. The author has done an awesome job of the history of the towers, from presenting the dream to reality along with the history of what happened there in 2001, Schweer said. It is informative, but not overly graphic or sensationalized, said Dr. Jay Arthur, executive director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He also includes some never-before-published photos of the construction site and how the builders overcame problems during construction. This is an excellent book that should be in every school library in the country and in the home of any child that is curious about the towers and what happened to them on 911.

   Conclusive book
The book, "Rendering the World's Two Towers," tells the story of how the twin towers came together in New York City. And then there was the first attack, the twin towers fell. The book covers why the twin towers fell, the Museum that was built on that terrible day. It also has pictures of the royal family, Diana said.

   Very informative
On 911 my kids were very intrigued with the small amounts of information I could give them concerning the events of the day, and wanted to learn more, Mr. Ridgeway said. I was hoping to find one that was more colorful and age appropriate for my 5 and 7 year old. Each night we read and talked about several pages of the book. The answer to most of their questions was probably yes, or at least some of them. The girls, for example, loved seeing all the images that corresponded with the pages.

   Great Book!
He was intrigued by the story of 911 and the photos are really nice, said Paul LiCalsi, director of photography for the city. Even with age, it's pretty easy to read. But there's a lot more to this book than meets the eye. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to the police.

   It is about the Twin towers an why they were made.
I think this book should be read by 8+ because it has some scary elements, Raymond said. It's a very good book, I think other people would love it too.

   Great series
I cannot recommend this entire series of books highly enough. Pick a topic that your child is or might be interested in and these books draw them right in. My son has been reading them since he was in second grade and he still anxiously awaits them as I buy new ones. It's by far his favorite series, and I'm not even counting the seasons that lasted from 1974-75.
