A little exaggeration makes legends from simple historical characters, legends that help form the fabric of our culture. In this volume, the tales of nine folk heroes are related— humorous and very tall indeed! Meet Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Sally Ann Thunder, Ann Whirlwind, John Henry, and more, and celebrate the riches this country has to offer.

Although I was hesitatnt about spending the money on these audio CDs, I am so thankful that I did! I am a student teacher, and I was teaching the class about imaginative literature, particularly legends/tall tales. I bought the American Tall Tales book by Mary Pope Osborne as well as these CDs. The CDs were the perfect accompaniement to the lesson. The students were completely engrossed in the stories, and it was a great alternative to simply me reading it aloud. It really brought the story alive, with expression and all of its descriptive words.
I think this is a perfect gift for an elementary teacher (I am in a 4th grade class) and a great way to bring American legends/tall tales to life for kids.
I was VERY pleased with this purchase!
