To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I remember about five years ago being shocked and very sad my neighbor's kids Weren't being taught the truth about 9/11. Since we homeschool, my older kids learned the facts but not much beyond that.
Living in a society that is bent on denying reality, this book is needed. It faces the truth of what happened along with the bravery demonstrated by the men an women present at ground zero. Along with truth and reverence, my children will be learning about bravery and sacrifice.
Well done. Again, my only criticism is I would happily purchase a hardcover, and I would rather buy directly from anyone but Amazon. Thank you for being a source of goodness and truth in these dark days.
I’m so grateful for this book! This was a good way to start a conversation with my kids on what Patriot Day is all about. It talks about the attacks on the twin towers and has a brief mention of the attack on the Pentagon and Flight 93. The lines all rhyme so it sounds nice to the ears while teaching very valuable lessons and reminding even the grown-ups how our country came together the day after 9/11/2001. Great conversation starter and excellent for even the smallest kids. The pictures are well thought out and have beautiful bold lines and bright colors. This book is going to be a family treasure.
This book is such a needed addition to our home library. With the 20th anniversary of September 11 in less than a week, I’d been hoping to find a book to help explain this to my kids. Thank you, PragerU, for just the perfect book. I’ve read this book daily to my 3 year old daughter and 6 year old son since we got it a few days ago (3 year old’s current favorite book, apparently). My son asks lots of questions, and my daughter can definitely grasp the idea of bad guys that want to hurt people. The tragedy of that day and the memorials afterward are presented factually and in kid-approachable fashion. Highly recommend.
I was initially skeptical that this topic could or should be covered in a children's book, especially in an effective manner, but PragerU managed to pull it off. This book deals with a potentially sensitive topic (which is generally going to be significantly more touchy for the parents reading it than for the kids listening) in a manner that manages to be not only respectful, but tactful, informative (sufficient for a young child), clever, and pleasant to look at. It doesn't (and can't) let your child experience what it was like to be alive on 9/11, but neither can any experience or piece of media—any more than I can ever know what it was like to live through the JFK assassination, the moon landing, or either world war. It does impart the important take-aways, though. My 4-year-old loved seeing the pictures and hearing the story, and it's made this book a valuable part of her collection.
This book is worded perfectly to explain the events of that day to my five year old. She was able to understand without being scared or afraid. The illustrations are beautifully done and don't take away from the story being told. We'll definitely be buying more of this series in the future.
I love this because it takes a difficult subject that happened in our lives and simplified it for younger minds. It inspired my little to ask more questions and I was able to use my own experience to answer what I could. I really like the PragerU kids content and books. Looking forward to more.
PragerU represents the true American value - the one we came here for. We buy all PragerU books for the kids to grow up to love their country, not hate their country. It's totally fine to note all the imperfectness of America, but it is still the best country on this earth. Go elsewhere if you hate it. Try living in a totalitarian country and be completely deprived of freedom of speech and religion.
I so appreciate Prager U and everything they're doing to help kids learn correct history and correct principles. This book was great for my kids. It taught about 9/11 in a very sensitive but serious manner, while still being entertaining for kids due to the introduction of a fun character. My husband read the very end, where it contains additional details about 9/11, and he broke down crying, which then led the rest of us to cry tears of sorrow and admiration for those that lost their lives that day. Truly an inspiring and educational book worthy of any home or community library.
