Awesome book to teach folktales and hyperbole. I will definitely use in my own classroom, since I am from Texas just like Bill! ( )

Pecos Bill is a legend who was separated from his family as an infant because he accidentally fell out of his family's covered wagon. He is then raised by wolves and learns how to live, survive, and roam the desert from the wolves. This book connects to history and from that many activities can be made which makes for a great teaching tool. The grade levels for Pecos Bill is grades 2-4. ( )

Tall tale about Bill, who faces wild and daring dangers each day. ( )
  skm88 | Jun 8, 2014 |
Steven Kellogg's vibrant, highly detailed illustrations and straight-forward text tell the story of Pecos Bill, one of the greatest cowboys in Texas. In addition to Pecos Bill's amazing feats (wrestling wild animals, taming rattlesnakes, battling the natural elements), Kellogg shares gorgeous illustrations of Texan landscapes and the world of Pecos Bill. This book could be incorporated into a unit of tall tales along with Kellogg's other books about similar characters and a discussion about these figures' roles in Western American culture. ( )
