Need a read-aloud for older kids? This collection has wonderful tales just begging to be read aloud, including Paul Bunyan, Davy Crockett, Pecos Bill, and more. Be sure to read the author's introduction, as she took great care to make these stories relevant for modern readers. My favorite here is the telling of Johnny Appleseed, which reads like a campfire tale and just might give you goosebumps!
