    One thought on “Larger Than Life: The Adventures of American Legendary Heroes”

    1. This book discusses 5 legend folk heroes that Americans talk about in classrooms today. The stories are told with humor and interest that relate to children. The book would be used in the classroom to tell the class about each character. The book is attractive to the eye because the colors and illustrations are beautiful.

    2. Eh, I'm not really crazy about tall tales but I guess when I was a kid I enjoyed them so other kids probably would too.
