Discussing 9/11 isn’t an easy task. We often hear, “I want to tell my child what happened but don’t know where to begin.” These tips have been prepared to help you navigate these conversations by offering simple and effective guidelines for talking to your children about such a difficult topic.
The September 11 Memorial & Museum page then goes on to list some of their suggestions. Feel free to compare and contrast, but here are our suggestions for how to introduce the kiddos to the subject of 9/11.

The Three Tall Buildings Ebook - PDF for download - Awaken Your Kids Books

That one day that changed everything. Two hijacked planes brought down - not two skyscrapers – but three. Bld 7 collapsed in almost perfect free-fall in what appears to be a classic demolition. So this is about how the huffed and puffed and 'pulled' the baby building down. Unlike the other books from the Awaken series which have 'comic' illustrations and are A4 in size, this book is smaller - A5 book – and has hand painted illustrations by a young art student in Lisbon, Mariana Santos (which were then scanned), and words by Dalia Mae Lachlan.

50% of the purchase of the book will be donated to Architects and Engineers of 9/11 ( All future profits will go back into producing more books like this. TO BE READ WITH ADULT SUPERVISION.

Kids’ book says 9/11 a conspiracy

Where there’s smoke, there’s conspiratorial fire.

THE 9/11 Memorial opened this week in New York City. By all accounts it’s a beautiful, sombre museum dedicated to those who lost their lives on the greatest act of terrorism perpetrated on United States soil.

The events of September 11, 2001, are officially regarded as an al-Qaeda plot. But conspiracy theorists have long tried to rewrite the official history. Some says Saudi Arabia was involved. The more extreme blame the US Government.

It’s one thing when 9/11 conspiracy theories bounce around the more colourful corners of cyberspace. But now, children are directly exposed to them through an illustrated kid’s book written right here in Australia.

Melbourne author Dee McLachlan, writing under the name “Dalia Mae Lachlan”, has penned a book called “The 3 Tall Buildings”. It tells the story of how the twin towers of the World Trade Centre, plus its neighbour World Trade Centre Building 7 (WTC 7), crumbled “like a big magic trick”.

We’ll have to give the rhyming scheme the benefit of poetic license.
“September 11 was most likely a false flag operation, and whatever powers that be wanted to create an enemy for a war machine,” McLachlan says, explaining her motivation for the book.
McLachlan says the events of that day were so horrific, so graphic and so fundamentally shocking to the western soul, that we’ve falsely pinpointed a face of evil who must have been behind it.
“It is much, much easier for us to believe that some foreign mad people orchestrated this very, very complex attack,” she says. “It is much easier to withstand the trauma than accept the evidence that says this is not the case.”

McLachlan believes the twin towers of the World Trade Centre, and WTC 7, all toppled with the aid of explosives. WTC 7 is the focus of much of her book, as stated in the promotional blurb:
“The book is about how they huffed and puffed and pulled the baby building down.”

The baby building in question was WTC7, a comparatively small 47 storey tower dwarfed by its near neighbours. The official report found that intense fires eventually led to floors failing, columns buckling and complete collapse. 9/11 conspiracists say it was demolished in the sort of implosion you occasionally see on TV where old hotels or obsolete high-rises are destroyed.

An official inquiry explained in precise detail how this building collapsed. Explosives had nothing to do with it. The main culprit was a lack of water (supplies were cut off due to the Twin Towers’ collapse). This meant unchecked fire caused catastrophic structural damage. Source: NewsComAu



The question is, why push the conspiratorial twist of events on young minds? The official version of events is hard enough to explain to the young (just ask this reporter, whose 7-year-old was born on September 11). Why not just tell a straight history and let kids grow old enough to process their own version later on?

“We have to work and think for ourselves as children or as adults,” McLachlan says. “We have got to look for where the truth might lie.

“Children have had rhymes about plagues and witches and all sorts of bad things. This book is the same. It’s a warning we need to think for ourselves.”

McLachlan is a film producer, director and writer and the parent of two teenagers. She says she wishes she didn’t have to write this book, but that she felt compelled to bring the truth behind 9/11 to light.

“I don’t want this stuff in my life. I would so prefer to be an artist who wants to make films, but the lies and deceit that I see plain in sight are so egregious that to be truthful to myself, I want to speak out,” she says.

“I honestly don’t want to do it, but for sake of my kids, I feel we have been drawn in by lies.”

Bio: Licensed A & P mechanic. U.S. Army Reserve, Combat Engineer, Specialized in Demolitions, Honorable Discharge.

Personal 9/11 Statement:
"In the Army Reserves I was trained in demolitions so I know what it takes to bring down a building in a controlled symmetrical fashion and what it looks like when it happens. As an aircraft mechanic, my knowledge of the properties of fuels, specifically Jet fuel (or highly refined kerosene), brings the conclusion that fires couldn't be hot enough to cause symmetrical structural collapse. Based on what I know, looking at it from various disciplines, it's obvious that all three WTC buildings collapsed due to pre-planned, well placed, precisely timed controlled demolitions."

AE911Truth profile pagePersonal 9/11 Statement:
I am 100% sure the official story is a planned made up fantasy!
There is no way any of those buildings fell because of fires, it would take a lot bigger fires and a lot more time to drop one of those buildings -- like "days" not hours then when they did fall they would have dropped and contorted, not imploded. This was a planned demolition in all aspects, the planes were just a nice diversion from the "truth" and that is what these people fear the most!

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth... work has been discredited by many of their peers?
FAQ #6: Why does AE911Truth represent only a small percentage of architects and engineers?

Most architects and engineers have never been presented with the scientific evidence of controlled demolition. In addition, most of those who take the time to examine this evidence acknowledge that the official story can’t be true. As of the date of this publication, there are almost 1,700 architects and engineers who openly support the findings of AE911Truth vs. only a few dozen who have openly supported the NIST WTC reports. Even so, in the end, the evidence stands on its own, regardless of how many professionals are aware of it.  A more detailed answer is available here.

Who is Winning the Peer-Reviewed Scientific Literature Battle?

Offended? Too bad, so are we. Being offended doesn't make you right. Facts do.

9/11 Coloring Book Teaching Kids ‘Truth’ About Terrorism Full Of Lies And Propaganda

‘A new 9/11 coloring book claiming to teach kids the truth about terrorism instead uses lies and propaganda to brainwash the next generation to support illegal perpetual wars. Government propagandists have released a new 9/11 coloring book that is supposed to begin teaching our children the “truth” about terrorism.

The coloring book is aimed at convincing children as young as 3 years old that illegal perpetual wars are necessary to protect American freedoms. While containing controversial and objectionable graphic content it has some how been slapped with a PG rating.

The book is full of half-truths, outright lies, and a distorted perception of reality that will breed deep-seeded hatred against Muslims in American children. It also serves to desensitize our children to the illegal terrorist activities being performed by our own government.’
