Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
If tall tales are of interest, then one of the favorite American tall tales relates to the lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his sidekick Babe, the big Blue Ox. The story starts with the remarkable speed with which Paul grew—by the age of one week, he was wearing his father's clothes. As he grew, Paul became the fastest and strongest lumberjack of them all. He drew together a team that worked hard to fell trees, creating the lumber that would be used to build homes, schools, churches, and whole towns. This crew needed to eat, and they consumed prodigious amounts of food, especially pancakes, soup, and milk. The drawing shows all of these larger-than-life episodes, but in the end, readers learn the truth about Paul Bunyan. This is a level 3 book in the "Step Into Reading" series for kids reading on their own. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
