Messages to Ground Zero

Description

A short montage of stories, poems and drawings created by New York children in response to the tragedy of 9/11, for primary and secondary English students.

Jon Scieszka, the best selling American children's writer and US ambassador for children's literature, introduces the book Messages to Ground Zero.

The children who wrote and drew about their thoughts and feelings after the attack, now grown up, read out what they wrote back then and talk about how they felt.

Jon also talks to former teacher, Shelley Harwayne, who was the force behind the collaboration, Messages to Ground Zero.

Part of the series: Reading Aloud New York Treats
