A dedication to all children born on September 11, 2001

The last decade has been filled with horrendous horrors. In some ways, these events have touched all of us personally. Who can forget the events of September 11, 2001? The upcoming tenth anniversary of 9/11 has been in my mind lately. I know of two women who gave birth on September 11, 2001, their story inspired me to write My Birthday is September Eleven and Other Short Stories.

Parents and teachers can use the Ebook to discuss 9/11 and the importance of having compassion for others.

See description of each story below:

My Birthday is September Eleven- A story about a boy who was born on 9/11. When the reader steps into the world of Matthew, he or she will recognize the undercurrent of mourning that will help all to not forget 9/11.

Zebra Boy – A biracial boy is spared further teasing when his best friend comes to his rescue.

The Good Samaritan – A group of fifth-graders raise funds to help a fellow classmate that needs money for a life-saving surgery.

No More Hunger – Ronald, a Haitian boy whose village was virtually wiped out by a devastating hurricane, becomes a victim of abject poverty. He is later rescued when the well-respected Madame Wilson takes it upon herself to nourish him back to health.

A New Life – A biracial boy experiences many hardships before being adopted by a caring couple.

  1. Hi, Nicole and welcome to the wonderfully chaotic world of book blogging. I'm rather new at this myself and I love to support my fellow bloggers. My nephew was born on 9/11 and it's always a somber affair. Good luck and best wishes. I'll be a frequent visitor.

  9. Nicole,
    Thanks for the reminder, especially this month. It's so easy to get caught up in everything that we don't take time to be grateful and compassionate. You're a hero to those kids.
