Must-Read Monday Linky {Tall Tales: Part 2}

Last week I shared with you my love of Steven Kellogg tall tales.  Well, here's another little set that I just LOVE to use as read alouds.  These are a little longer, but oh-so-good!

But, I'm really here to share another "rare" favorite in this genre.  Last week, I told you about Swamp Angel.  This week, let me introduce you to Dona Flor.

There are SO many tall tales from the South, but it's often tough to find tall tales from the West.  Dona Flor is a giant woman with a great big heart and students learn a lot about the Mexican influence in the Southwest from this story.  They are entertained throughout the story, surprised by the ending, and they even learn several Spanish words along the way.

This is a great tall tale to add to any collection! :)  I'll be back next week with a peek at the chapter book we just finished up.

Link up and let me know what you've been reading!
