  1. On the morning of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was reading “The Pet Goat” with a class of second-graders at Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida when he learned of the 9/11 terror attacks. Bush remained seated for roughly seven minutes, following along as the children finished reading the book. Bush delivered his initial remarks on the attacks inside the school and was flown to a secure location aboard Air Force One before returning to the White House later that evening. “The Pet Goat” gained widespread attention in 2004 with Michael Moore’s documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, though the film incorrectly referred to it as “My Pet Goat.”
