REMEMBERING HEROES, (second in the DISCOVERING HEROES series), Kristie Bouryal

In this story, based on true events, Tyler, Olivia and Sophia join their grandparents at a memorial service for September 11, 2001 at FDNY’s Rescue 1. There, they learn about some of their grandparents’ brave friends, everyday heroes and uncover a lot they never knew about America’s darkest day by asking questions and actively listening. Join in their discoveries. Together, we can help the kids of today and tomorrow to never forget.

“Remembering Heroes” is the second book in the Discovering Heroes™ series of books for kids of all ages, especially 7-11. “My Buddy’s a Hero-And I Didn’t Even Know It” is the first book of the series. “9/11 Courage and Tributes” is the third.

GRANDMA’S MAGIC BOX, Nadine Thomas

This book is a collection of stories written by a grandmother and sent to her grandson as a way to keep in touch over a long distance. These stories are delightful adventure trips for young children. The stories all revolve around a box that the grandmother had given to her grandson for Christmas. Each story takes the reader to a different location with facts about that location. The ending of each story is quite a mystery. These are sure to delight any child ages four to eight.
