Paul Bunyan 20th Anniversary Edition (Reading Rainbow Book)

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

There are plenty of American tall tales. The folktales are fictional stories of men and women who help create America. One of the fictional characters is Paul Bunyan, the giant lumberjack. Steven Kellogg’s Paul Bunyan 20th Anniversary Edition (Reading Rainbow Book) chronicles his adventures. Paul Bunyan, the woodsman, helps people build their homes and cities by providing them with lumber.

Paul Bunyan is a tall, strong man. He is taller than the top of trees. Bunyan, the mythical lumberjack, is able to uproot trees and break them in half. The lumberman wears blue duck pants and a red & white plaid shirt. A jaunty wool cap covers the American legend's curly, black hair.

Babe the Blue ox is found doing a snowstorm. Paul Bunyan and his pet ox have all kinds of adventures across the vast lands of America. The woodsman with the aid of Babe the Blue ox saw trees in the Midwest. The great forests provide building materials for the incoming settlers. Paul Bunyan, the giant lumberman, needs a way to send the lumber to town. So what did the great man do? Paul Bunyan creates the Great Lakes!

The great forests in Midwest America decreases. Paul Bunyan, Babe the Blue ox, and his lumber crew travel to the great forests in the Pacific Northwest. The incoming settlers in Northwest America need lumber, too. Paul Bunyan, the giant of a man, with the help of his crew provides housing supplies to the settlers.

On the way, to the Pacific Northwest, Paul Bunyan makes several stops. He and Babe the Blue ox create a little something now known as the Grand Canyon.

Steven Kellogg’s Paul Bunyan 20th Anniversary Edition (Reading Rainbow Book) contains many of Paul Bunyan’s adventures. Read about the giant griddle for making pancakes. The griddle is so large. The men skate with butter on their feet to butter it. Bunyan's adventures are so outrageous the young reader will laugh until their sides hurt.



John Henry is the subject of another tall tales books for children. His legendry strength help Americans build the great railroads which criss-cross the country. Read John Henry's exploits in John Henry and his Mighty Hammer.
