I read this book every year in honor of 9/11 to my Kindergarten class. It illustrates the story of Phillippe Petit, who walked between our twin towers.

My one student said "well I'm glad Phillippe had already walked across that rope or he would have been really hurt."
I‘m choking up just thinking about that. How innocent.
