As the 20 year mark approaches, I am reminded of this picture book about 9/11. When the planes hit the towers, two women from South Africa had just arrived in New York for a flower show. When the show was cancelled, they formed the thousands of roses into the shape of the Twin Towers in Union Square Park. This short picture book describes the memorial with heartfelt simplicity. Never intending the book to get published, Winter was persuaded to submit her handmade book. September Roses is a window into the events of this tragic time that children can understand.
