The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein. 2004 Caldecott Medal winner. The story of Philippe Petit and his tightrope walk between the twin towers
In 1974, French aerialist Philippe Petit threw a tightrope between the two towers of the World Trade Center and spent an hour walking, dancing, and performing high-wire tricks a quarter mile in the sky.

The Three Pigs by David Wiesner. Caldecott Winner. I loved this book! It's so great that there are different versions of the three little pigs. This book could be used as a creative writing, critical thinking, or compare and contrast. I had my 12 year old brother read this book and he loved it.
The Three Pigs : David Wiesner has created many excellent children’s books, and this tale is one of them. Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs, but this time, a different approach has been taken. This time, the pigs escape the wolf and find themselves in another world entirely. It is here they meet other nursery rhyme and fantasy creatures such as a dragon, the cat and the fiddle, and more.
"The Three Pigs" by David Wiesner starts off with the original story of the wolf blowing down the pigs' houses made of straw, sticks, and brick. However, then the pigs go on a magical adventure to escape the wolf and even themselves in the middle of other traditional picture books. Ages 4-8.

Officer Buckle & Gloria (Caldecott Medal Book - 1996) by Peggy Rathmann, "Besides the beguiling story, the affable illustrations of the smiling Gloria, the accidental mayhem in the background, and the myriad safety tips -- such as 'always pull the toothpick out of your sandwhich' and 'never lick a stop sign in the winter' -- add to the enjoyment. A glorious picture book." -- The Horn Book
