As clarified in September 2011, the graphic coloring novel We Shall Never Forget 9/11 The Kids Book of Freedom published August 3rd, 2011 is based on wire reports - news accounts and contains original pictorials concerning the May 2011 shooting of terrorist Osama bin Laden (OBL). This book has nothing to do with the US Administration's movie plans on the killing of bin Laden. Our company has not been in contact with Hollywood film makers or anyone else in the entertainment industry. We had zero contact with the Administration concerning this book and the book was not published for marketing research. A section inside this book is based on the facts similar to statements by President Barack H. Obama on live television and other facts surrounding the 9/11 radical Muslim Islamic terrorist OBL and his reign of American hatred; including OBL's elimination at the hands of SEAL Team Six directed from the orders issued by President George W. Bush.
To the American people and all others who may read this child's coloring book, We Shall Never Forget is designed (8.5" x 11", 36 pages.) to be a tool that parents can use to help teach children about the facts surrounding 9/11. This book also describes basic freedoms in America. We suggest parental guidance. As the 9/11 events are shown countless times on national media, this book will help children understand the meaning of these events. The book was created with honesty, integrity, reverence, respect and does not shy away from the truth. In this book you will see what happens to a terrorist who orders others to bomb our peace loving nation. The September 11, 2001 attacks on America are now commonly referred to as 9/11. It was a series of coordinated attacks by a radical Islamic Muslim extremist terrorist group who call themselves Al Qaeda. They were self-proclaimed Jihadists; many American people refer to them as homicide bombers. Their leader was a Saudi national named Osama Bin Laden. He and his men used hijacked U.S. airplanes as weapons. A total of 3,000+ innocent people from over 70 countries were killed. There were no survivors from any of the airplanes. Terrorism is human made and is very old; it comes in people of all shapes, sizes, and colors. We Shall Never Forget 9/11. Current examples of modern evil are the Radical Islamic Muslim Tsarnaev brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar, one of which became a US Citizen on 9/11/2012.Germany Frankfurter Allgemeine coverage of 9/11 Coloring Book Malbuch soll Kinder an 9/11 erinnernShipping to Europe 1-book=$7.95, 2-books=$12.95, 3-books= 25.95, etc

.......But publishing houses like Mr. Bell’s have discovered that selling political literature to children is also good business."
School Library Journal "The world's leading reviewer of books, multimedia, and technology for children and teens!"
A coloring book depicting the events of September 11, 2001 is attracting criticism for what some call a "lack of sensitivity"..........."We do say 'radical Muslim Islamic extremists' because that's what those men were," Bell says. "The book does not address Muslims, period. It does not address the Islamic faith. It addresses the 19 hijackers and Osama Bin Laden. Period."

CNN Dr. Drew Show Headline News - 9/11 Coloring Book
What's incredible and shameful said Bell, "A spokesperson for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR )calls the 9/11 Kids Book of Freedom "disgusting" and refers to actions of Bin Laden and his 19 hijackers as a simple "tragedy"! "Katrina was a tragedy", added Bell. "What Bin Laden did, is simply called terror and that is why Pres. Obama justified the elimination of terrorist Osama." Publisher appears on Dr. Drew's CNN program and verifies the coloring novel does not promotes anti-Muslim stereotypes and does not mention the Muslim Faith, even one time. CAIR director takes offense to images of the Christian Cross on woman's neck and compares the 9/11 book to cartoons of the 1940's; in reference to the Japanese 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor.

Most of the children in elementary schools today were born after September 11, 2001, and this presents parents with a dilemma: How do you explain the event to a child who has no first-hand knowledge of it? As the ten-year anniversary approaches, parents worrying about how to handle the subject can breathe a sigh of relief.
Chicago Tribune 9/11
Bell said the book is mild compared with the graphic video games children play or even footage of the attacks that shows people plunging from the World Trade Center towers.
"It's a generic black-and-white coloring book with tender language for the children and their parents," Bell said. "It's designed as a teaching and learning tool, and it's a memorial tribute to the families of 9/11."

A recently published children's coloring book, called "We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids' Book of Freedom," has stirred controversy since its release, being labeled everything from "disaster porn" to propaganda. 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? “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.”

Right, right, “Those who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it,” agreed. Lessons, though, come in different forms and different degrees. A coloring book, or graphic novel, for kids, might take the history lesson of terroristic attacks on the United States and the war on terrorism to an extreme degree. Might. You decide.

As the world prepares to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a controversial children's colouring book entitled We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids' Book of Freedom is drawing ire and a defence from the publisher who argues it's just a learning tool.

Outside The Lines? 9/11 Coloring Book Seeks To Tell Kids 'Truth' About Terrorism
Bell said people's feedback to that page has been positive. Parents tell him that when they show their kids that image, they understand that "we got him." "If you bomb our country, America will chase you 'til the very end," he said. "That's what it shows." Bell insists it's not ideological, described himself as a "very liberal" guy, and his company has published all types of books.

WOW If we do not stand up for America - who will.... Remember: "If good men doing nothing, then Evil men will prevail." Honestly, I hope you make millions from sales of your 9/11 coloring book. Please be careful because Muslim believers have infiltrated our government, that's the only way our country could be destroyed - from within. Sad Best to you and your company Bruce Waltz Viet Nam Vet

With no sense of irony whatsoever, CAIR’s Dawud Walid thundered: “This publisher is doing a disservice to innocent young minds by showing this type of nonsense. Every single reference to Muslims in [the book] has to do with radical extremists and depictions of people being terrorists.”
Well, Walid, maybe if radical, extremist, terrorist Muslims, acting in the name of Islam and motivated by Islamic teaching, hadn’t murdered 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001, a coloring book about that terrible day would depict Muslims in a different way. But of course, this is the one truth that Hamas-linked CAIR and its allies and useful idiots would most like to obfuscate, so as to more easily advance their narrative that Muslims are victims and the problem is really “Islamophobia.”
But as far as Wayne Bell of Really Big Coloring Books is concerned, We Shall Never Forget 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 you think, they’re having a bad hair day?”
Truth is the Truth.

How can you “demonize” those who behave like demons already. They act and speak like the demons from the pits of Hell. Truth, mixed with lies, is not truth

Show them no mercy and tell the children the truth. Islam is in no way about “peace” except the peace of the grave.
And, truly, there will be no peace in the grave for them.
I served 35 years in the USMC and Army and two tours to Iraq.
The terrorists really do not care who they murder. They just want to murder.
When confronted, they hide behind women and children.
If you fire, the women and children will be hit.
If you do not fire, your men die.
Show people like this no mercy and do not give in.
God bless your work to tell the truth.
P.S. I have friends in Uganda with small kids. Do you have something that would be appealing to African children? I served in Iraq with many Ugandan’s. They speak English there.
