The Red Bandanna Book Review

The Red Bandanna: A life, A Choice, A Legacy - Tom Rinaldi

I believe this is the adult book but I couldn't find the children's version which is what I read. Same author just a shortened, simplified version. 


This was really good. I do feel like I need to read the adult book now. But I would definitely recommend this to kids, it flows really well and doesn't feel like a nonfiction story. I definitely cried a bit reading this, especially since I'm old enough to remember 9/11. I was in 6th grade. 

Its hard to believe many kids now don't know this day and I feel like this book does a good job putting the panic and fear that people, especially people in NYC went through on that day. Welles is a beautiful person and a hero that we should all know about. I personally had no idea about this man until reading this book
