American Tall Tales Companion Reader
This beautifully illustrated Companion Reader is an exact transcript of Jim Weiss’s award-winning storytelling performance of three classic American stories and one original tall tale, available on MP3 and audio CD from Well-Trained Mind Press. The Reader can be enjoyed on its own, or used along with the recorded performance to build strong language skills.
Listen to the Jim Weiss stories, read along to improve fluency, vocabulary, and grammar, and then speak great words and sentences out loud by practicing and performing the short, accessible dramatic versions of Jim’s performances (including a stage play, a puppet show, and a dramatic monologue).
Choose from PDF or paperback versions. Reading level: grades 2-4.
