Patriot's Day

Each year addressing Patriot's Day with the little ones has been challenging. You don't want to go too deep into it and lose them or worse - frighten them - and you want to make sure they know how important the day is. It's a balancing act.

Enter The Man Who Walked Between the Towers. He was also doing a balancing act. We read the book and discussed briefly why the Towers aren't there anymore and I was surprised to learn many had already seen films and videos about 9/11.

We moved on to perspective and studied the illustrations more deeply, then the kids had at it.
They did so great with this really difficult art concept!
