    " Another fun read aloud. My girls love tall tales, especially when I make them up, but when I run dry of creativity, these old standbys not only entertain them, but give me new ideas for my own. "

    " This was a nice supplement to our study of American history (we're learning about explorers, mountain men, and American legends). The audio version had a lively and animated narrator. Even though the book recommends this for kids 9+, my younger kids enjoyed it. "
