This 32 page children's book, with 25 child-friendly photos, is an ideal introduction to the facts and themes surrounding the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. This is the true story of "Sirius," the police patrol dog who died in the Twin Towers on 9-11-01. The story is told by "Sirius" in his own words, and also recounts his friendship with his police officer partner, David, who survived the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks. This book has been used in New Jersey's 9/11 (Patriot Day) Education curriculum since 2009 (see attached letter). A song and three lesson plans are also attached.

I am interested in reading your book. It sounds like a great jumping off point for discussions. I have used a different book in student teaching for younger grades. "14 Cows for America" is a great book for teaching about the basic events of 9/11 but focuses more on how people reacted to the attack. We had some great discussions in the 4th grade class I was helping.
