September Roses (By: Jeanette Winter)

AR Book Level: 3.8

Scholastic Book Level: 3.8

Summary: Two African women are headed to a flower show in New York City during the tragic events of September 11th. These two women use their flowers to create a memorial to the people of New York that will never be forgotten.

Review: This was a really moving story. My daughter just randomly picked it out at the library and while reading it I was almost moved to tears. The basis of the story is factual which makes it even better.

 

Activities:

There are lots of September 11th activities that could be done with this, but I found a really well put together unit that utilizes the book and also brings to light the events of September 11th. It comes in two parts, download them here and here.
