Released August 2011


Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

The follow-up to Faces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11 finds the youngsters born on that tragic day sharing their illustrations and thoughts on what they will do to make the world a better place.This book is dedicated to Christina Taylor Green, the young girl who was killed in the tragic Arizona shootings that severely injured Representative Gabrielle Gifford.

Each state is represented by the child born on 9/11 that appeared in the first book. Included are a snapshot of the child, though on my advanced copy the children's pictures were no more than a black box so I can't comment on any of those images. Each child also drew a picture and it's clear to see that there are some budding artists among them! Following that is the thing that child plans to do to make the world a better place. Dreams range from becoming president to helping battle for world peace.

This is a poignant collection, especially for those who were old enough to remember the events of 9/11 or were affected personally by the horrific acts of terrorism. Released just in time for the 10 year anniversary, this is a collection that will touch many hearts.
