Tall Tales

 - by kgilchrist

Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, Casey Jones….. do these names ring a bell?  I hope so!!  They are just a few of the tall tale heroes we’ve been reading about over the last week.   I think my favorite characteristic of tall tales is the many exaggerations you will find in the stories because it keeps them so interesting.  I also like how they solve problems in such a crazy way.  Comment below and tell us what your favorite tall tale hero is and why!  I would love to hear!   My favorite is Casey Jones because of how he risked his life to save others.  I also like him because is ALWAYS on time, and I always like to be on time too. :)
