The Tale of Paul Bunyan (Little Golden Books)

by Lori Haskins Houran (Author) Luke Flowers (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

This terrific tall tale is about the tallest lumberjack ever and his big blue ox!

Lumberjacks came and went, but none left their mark like the great Paul Bunyan.

This Little Golden Book shares the very entertaining and very tall tale of everyone's favorite lumberjack and his giant ox, Babe. When Paul Bunyan was a baby, his first sneeze blew a flock of ducks south! When Paul Bunyan was a man, his footprints filled with rain, and each one turned into a lake! Paul Bunyan wasn't real, but young children will have a great time hearing his story and learning about tall tales.
