The man who walked between the towers

This week, grade 1-5 have read the awe-inspiring book, The man who walked between the towers by Mordicai Gerstein. This beautifully illustrated book tells the true story of Philippe Petit who walked on a tight rope between the twin towers in NYC in 1974. It was a good opportunity for classes to discuss what happened on September 11, 2001, but also to marvel at Philippe Petit’s courage.
