Ride across Texas on a mountain lion with Pecos Bill…Work up a giant appetite with the mighty lumberjack Paul Bunyan…spread happiness with Johnny Appleseed…and confront the Fastest Draw in the West!
Read these wild tales–and then act them out yourself!

This Bundle includes a CD of the audio narration, and a paperback copy of the illustrated companion book.

Save when you get the audio and illustrated text together! 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. 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 in the book 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).

Format: paperback book and audio CD (Or click HERE to buy a downloadable version, and start enjoying your book right now!)

2 reviews for American Tall Tales Physical Bundle

  1. I am trying to understand how this is a sale since the sale price and the price crossed off are both exactly the same. Is this an error?

    • Sorry about that! We’ve corrected it. You should now see a difference between the normal price (34.90) and the sale price.

  2. Approximately how long are the story cds?

    • Most of Jim’s CDs are between 55 and 75 minutes. “American Tall Tales” is approximately 1 hour.
