Summary Man who walked between the towers: A look at the high-wire walk made by Philippe Petit in 1974 between the World Trade Center's Twin Towers in New York City, and how it is still considered one of history's most artistic crimes. Snowflake Bentley was a self-taught scientist who photographed thousands of individual snowflakes in order to study their unique formations. Miss Rumphius traveled near and far, witnessing beauty of all kinds, and went on to help make the world a more beautiful place with a simple handful of seeds. A charming rhyme describes the life's work of renowned Mexican potter Juan Quezada, and the process he uses to create his pots after the style of the Casas Grandes people.
