Osama bin Laden: 3/10/57 – 5/1/11

Well, no doubt, the subject of Osama bin Laden may come up today. While googling for some child friendly learning opportunities, I uncovered an interesting interview. In it, Omar bin Laden, tells what it was like to grow up with Osama bin Laden as his father. Your children will learn that life with you isn’t so bad after all!

It turns out, Omar, who was 20 on that fateful September day in 2001, has published a book along with his mother titled, Growing Up bin Laden: Osama’s Wife and Son Take Us Inside Their World. Now I haven’t read that one, but I can vouch for The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. This was a fascinating, well researched, trip through bin Laden's mind. I reviewed it here along with a children’s book about Al Qaeda.
