America is Under Attack is a picture book about the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. In this book, Don Brown portrays the ordinary day on which these terrible events occurred and the ordinary, innocent people that were affected. Readers will get an inside look of this day in the life of a firefighter, a worker in the world trade center, and an army officer at the Pentagon. Strangers who worked many floors away from one another suddenly became friends and allies as they tried to escape the burning building in one piece. By the end of this book, readers will better understand the harsh reality of 9/11 and be inspired by the selfless acts of so many ordinary people on that day in the United States of America.
