Tales as Tall as the Sky

“Tales as Tall as the Sky” is the story of three children in their tree house at the end of the summer and complaining that they have nothing exciting to do. When one produces a book of American tall tales, they begin to explore the wild and adventurous stories of Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Hurricane Hallie, bringing to vibrant life this exciting literary genre. Designed to encourage interest in books and reading.

Curriculum Connections: Theater Arts, History, Communication, Analysis, Aesthetics, Language Arts, Contextual Relevancy and Critical Response
