The Red Bandanna by Tom Rinaldi

By Lauren Ayube

America changed on September 11th, 2001. While it is a crucial and important time in the history of the country, teachers often struggle on how to broach the subject with their students in a sensitive, age appropriate manner. One way to talk to children about September 11th is to focus on all of the amazing people who risked or sacrificed their lives to save others. The young adult version of The Red Bandanna is the beautiful true story of Welles Crowther, a regular 24 year old man whose name and acts of heroism will be remembered for many years to come.
