“This book does not shy away from the truth.”
The publisher of a new coloring book for kids posted a video on his website explaining the thought process behind his work. The commemorative book, released not long before the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 is called We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom.Publisher, Wayne Bell, said in a press release that his coloring book is meant to be an educational tool, but many parents are outraged by what they see on the pages. The first photo in this post shows militants shooting Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. There is another page that shows bin Laden imagining the impending attacks. All the pages are in bold back and white so your little ones can fill in the color based on their own imagination. The interviews I aired in my newscast tonight came from the NBC affiliate in Missouri and included Bell who said the straight facts are what people want. Others disagreed.
