Someone in my family brought these books to my attention. The September 11th book was interesting, classic childrens propaganda:

2016 people died? I cant find anything on the internet using that number. It seems like the author just wanted to use 2016, which happens to be next year. Is this a prediction for something or a mistake by a massive childrens education company whose located in NYC itself with its building being completed in 2001. You would think they would be educated enough to publish the correct death toll. Scholastic released Harry Potter on September 1st 1998 and own the entire book series. Meaning billions of dollars and massive influence.

There's no error. That's how many were in the buildings.

1 762 residents of New York
1 402 persons in Tower 1
674 residents of New Jersey
658 employees of Cantor Fitzgerald L.P.
614 persons in Tower 2
355 employees of Marsh Inc.
343 firefighters
175 employees of Aon Corporation
37 Port Authority police officers
23 police officers
2 paramedics
1 firefighter was killed by a man who jumped off the top floors

1402 + 614 = 2016

depends where you look what number you are given:

wiki says In total, 2,996 people died in the attacks, including the 245 civilians, a law enforcement officer, and the 19 perpetrators aboard the four planes.

CBS The city medical examiner's office said that Dr. Sneha Anne Philip, 31, was the 2,751st victim killed at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Cnn The change from 2,792 to 2,752 is the result of an ongoing review process -- in particular of those initially reported as missing for whom no human remains have been identified.

More than 2,600 people died at the World Trade Center; 125 died at the
Pentagon; 256 died on the four planes. The death toll surpassed that at Pearl
Harbor in December 1941.

So who knows how many actually died??
