One Nation: America Remembers September 11, 2001 by LIFE

Sometimes, a picture truly can be worth a thousand words. For many of our students, who were quite young on September 11, 2001, this book has been a visual representation of the stories they have heard told by survivors, family and friends of the victims, rescue workers, and others who were affected. It is filled with photographs from the day and brief first and second-hand accounts, as well as a basic timeline of the events. This is by no means a one-stop research tool on the subject, but it would be a wonderful way to supplement other materials, including With Their Eyes: September 11th -- the view from a high school at Ground Zero edited by Annie Thoms; several students from Stuyvesant High School are even pictured within the pages.
