The Man Who Walked Between the Towers and more inspiring tales

It’s fascinating to see which stories are made into children entertainment, and Philippe Petit’s incredible feat of walking between the twin towers of the World Trade Center should be something to spur on a child’s imagination. His story was adapted by Mordicai Gerstein into a children’s story and it’s one of four that has been included in this collection boasting themes of self esteem, reading skills, and creativity.

First off there’s “The Man Who Walked Between the Towers”, written and illustrated by Gerstein, and the story is narrated here by Jake Gyllenhaal. It’s the kind of story that can inspire a kid to dream big, so just make sure they don’t attempt to reproduce the stunt.
