The Man Who Walked Between the Towers is such a great book to teach tension. It also is a true story about a man that snuck into the World Trade Center Towers as they were being constructed, slung a tight rope across the towers, and walked in the sky!!
Going along with the World Trade Center theme, Fireboat: The Heroic Adventures of the John J. Harvey is an incredible true story about how an old fireboat helped during the terrorist attacks on 9/11. It's a great book for teaching tension!
Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China is an awesome twist on the Little Red Riding Hood story, and a great book to teach tension!
