"disgusting..." or 'educational tool"????????
For a few editorials, go to the publisher's site here.
FACT: The terrorists who were responsible for 9/11 WERE muslims. No matter how anybody tries to color them differently.
From the Guardian:
9/11 children's colouring book angers US Muslims
The Kids' Book of Freedom condemned as 'disgusting' by Council on American-Islamic Relations
Wednesday 31 August 2011
A colouring book about the events of 9/11, complete with pictures of the burning twin towers and the execution of a cowering Osama bin Laden for children to fill in, has provoked outrage among American Muslims.
We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids' Book of Freedom has just been released by the Missouri-based publisher Really Big Coloring Books, which says it is "designed to be a tool that parents can use to help teach children about the facts surrounding 9/11". Showing scenes from 9/11 for children to colour in and telling the story of the attacks and the subsequent hunt for Osama bin Laden, "the book was created with honesty, integrity, reverence, respect and does not shy away from the truth", according to its publisher, which says that it has sold out of its first print run of 10,000 copies....

Outside the lines: 9/11 coloring book causes controversy
Is it an attention-grabbing publicity stunt, or an effort to educate kids about the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the decade of fighting that followed?
The publisher of a new children’s coloring book, called “We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom,” says it is the latter. Really Big Coloring Books Inc. publisher Wayne Bell says the book is intended to be educational.
“It’s really designed for older kids, not preschoolers,” said Bell in a phone interview. “It’s designed to be a teaching and learning tool for parents and teachers to use with their children.”...
As usual, when CAIR is offended, the usual threats ensue. From Jihad Watch:
Missouri: Publisher calls FBI over Muslim rage at truthful 9/11 coloring book
Hamas-linked CAIR and allied groups are enraged, and it looks likely that Really Big Coloring Books is receiving threats, because of a coloring book that dares to portray the Islamic jihadists who attacked us on 9/11 as...Islamic jihadists. Of course, this is the one truth that Hamas-linked CAIR and its allies and useful idiots like the Center for American Progress would most like to obfuscate, so as to more easily advance their narrative that Muslims are victims and the problem is really "Islamophobia."
But Wayne Bell is just telling the truth: “Every time we mention one of the hijackers we call them what they are. And that’s what parents wanted. Radical, Islamic, Muslim Extremists. And every time we mention one of the hijackers like the three guys that drove the plane into the Pentagon, there’s nothing else you can call them. I mean, what do think, they’re having a bad hair day?”...

"...Teaching and learning tool..."or "disgusting"??????
The last word - for now - goes to Diane Fairben, a retired teacher AND the mother of 9/11 fallen Paramedic, Keith:
To me this looked like a tastefully done booklet. The publisher, or whoever the man was being interviewed, was not someone who I could tell was out to make a buck. The booklet is for ages 8 and up, and presents factual info in an easy to read format. Our children need to be taught about that day, and if this can help do that, I am all for it.
Yes, our children DO need to be taught about that day. CAIR can be offended all they like, but the facts IS the facts.
