American Tall Tales CD
By James Weiss
Publisher Greathall Productions

Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill--if you're a fan of tall tales, you'll enjoy this collection from Jim Weiss. These tales are a part of our American oral storytelling tradition that all American youngsters should have the opportunity to hear as told by a master storyteller. Jim Weiss is a master storyteller. With apt voice characterizations, he helps you see the story in your mind as you listen.

American Tall Tales would be a great addition to American history studies or a story telling or tall tales unit study. Even students studying high school level American Literature would benefit from hearing these tales as opposed to reading them. This and other Jim Weiss story CDs make a great tool for helping non-auditory learners develop listening skills in a non-intimidating, fun way. Be prepared to help by answering questions about the CD and allowing time to relisten to passages for those whose listening concentration is less developed. This CD makes enjoyable listening whether your purpose oriented or not. My children clamor for these CDs.
