Books that Walk the Line (Literally)

For those parents planning a library trip this week and whose children can't get enough of the stunt of this guy, I'm offering a few book selections. Not that I'd ever encourage my son to be a tightrope walker, much less walk on a 2-inch wire over and across the Grand Canyon but, sometimes, a simple picture book gives them the excitement, the information, and thrill enough to satisfy their eager little spirits...for now.

Mirette on the Highwire by Emily Arnold McCully

Starring Mirette and Bellini by Emily Arnold McCully

Mirette and Bellini Cross Niagara Falls by Emily Arnold McCully

The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein

{A video from yesterday's gravity-defying tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon}
I will say Nik and family make a strong statement regarding their faith in Christ. This is a family who has known fear, tragedy, and faced the unknown. They have lived through death, seen family members crippled, and encountered many factors through generations of their family and still...every single time...they turn to a power greater than themselves and give him glory, for opportunities, for courage, for beauty, for scenery, and for the winds beneath their feet. And they praise Him in the middle of it all.
