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.
