SummaryBeginning readers will enjoy learning about these bigger than life legends when our librarian, Miss Michelle, shares her love of the stories and books she has gathered at the library. Each stimulating program features an eager and diverse circle of youngsters who enthusiastically share these stories aloud with their fellow readers.
Johnny Appleseed: Johnny "Appleseed" Chapman they say was the kind of man everybody liked, including animals of the forest. With a frying pan on his head and his pockets bulging with apple seeds, he left his home in New England and headed west. A tall legend about the man who lived for others.
Paul Bunyan: Now here is a tall tale that young readers will love. It's about bigger than life Paul Bunyan and his constant companion Babe The Blue Ox. They really knew how to have an adventure.
John Henry: John Henry was a steel drivin' man, born with a silver hammer in his hand. The tall tale goes that one day a hissing, spitting, steaming machine was challenging John Henry to a test of which could do the most work, the fastest. Well kids, you'll just have to read the story to find out who won that contest.
Pocahontas: Being an Indian princess sounds like a pretty carefree life, but Pocahontas was no ordinary Indian princess. Her life changed the day she met the English colonist, whose ships had crossed the great ocean. As strange as these new arrivals looked, she was quick to make them her friends.
Paul Revere: Born in Boston, MA, in 1735, Paul was a young boy when he learned the silversmith trade from his father. His legend, however, would be as an American patriot but he would be immortalized for his famous "midnight ride" to warn the colonists that the British were coming.
