9/11 coloring book depicts burning towers

DETROIT (WXYZ/CNN) - As the nation gets ready to mark the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, some are questioning whether a new kids' coloring book is appropriate.

The graphic coloring novel is called, We Shall Never Forget 9/11 - The Kids' Book of Freedom.

It starts with Osama bin Laden plotting to attack the United States and ends with the raid on his compound.

The publisher said the book is a factual tool to teach children about the attacks and the war on terror.

But the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Michigan disagrees.

He said it portrays all Muslims as radicals or extremists.

There are also questions as to whether the book is too graphic for children, which depicts the Twin Towers on fire and a bullet heading for bin Laden.

The coloring book has a PG rating and is only available online.
