As September approaches, a crop of titles reaches out to young readers. A Nation Challenged: A Visual History of 9/11 and Its Aftermath, Young Readers Edition, edited by Mitchel Levitas, photos edited by Nancy Lee and Lonnie Schlein, with an introduction by New York Times executive editor Howell Raines, presents an intimate account of one of America's darkest days, adapted from the stories that ran in the Times. Text pulled directly from the paper's pages plus Pulitzer Prize-winning photos create a sense of immediacy while helping readers make sense of the war in Afghanistan, the tragedy's impact on the global community and new security measures at home and abroad. A ""How to Help"" section and comprehensive resource listings put the focus on the future.
