9/11 Books that make me happy

     I've spent the last couple of days worrying about my blog post for today.  It's been ten years since the 9/11 attacks and it feels like yesterday.  Before 9/11 I was just somebody who lived in NYC, but on that day and in the following months, I became a New Yorker. I fell in love with the city, its resiliency, and passion...and I felt home, part of a new family.  That day changed my life in more ways that I can say.  I changed careers and reevaluated my whole life.  I'm a teacher today because of 9/11 (as were many of the New York City Teaching Fellows I met that year).
     Getting back to the blog...on the days that followed the attacks I found myself glued like a zombie to the television newscasts.  I needed to find something to keep my mind occupied so I turned to books, looking for ones that would make me happy and bring back good memories.  So today, I'll just show you some of those books in no particular order:

Mafalda & Friends 1 (English edition)     The Phantom Tollbooth     The Little Prince     The Adventures of Tintin, Vol. 3: The Crab with the Golden Claws / The Shooting Star / The Secret of the Unicorn (3 Volumes in 1)
