Read full description of the books:
I tend to stay away from the purely Disney synopsis stories, but there are some useful read-aloud stories for first graders. When they do a unit on tall tales, John Henry, Pecos Bill, and Paul Bunyan work pretty well. These are rather short but well written versions. Casey at Bat has good illustrations and is just plain great literature and poetry. Although there are some difficult words, they offer a good opportunity to explain them to young students who are eager to learn "big words". Finally, The Little House is a good story to demonstrate the passage of time almost like a literary time-lapse movie.

Read information about the authorParke Godwin was an American writer known for his lyrical yet precise prose style and sardonic humor. He was also known for his novels of legendary figures placed in realistic historical settings; his retelling of the Arthur legend (Firelord in 1980, Beloved Exile in 1984, and The Last Rainbow in 1985) is set in the 5th century during the collapse of the Roman empire, and his reinterpretation of Robin Hood (Sherwood, 1991, and Robin and the King, 1993) takes place during the Norman conquest and features kings William the Conqueror and William Rufus as major characters. His other well-known works include Waiting For The Galactic Bus (1988) and its sequel The Snake Oil Wars (1989), humorous critiques of American pop culture and religion.
Parke Godwin also worked as a radio operator, a research technician, a professional actor, an advertising man, a dishwasher and a maitre d' hotel.
Godwin's short fiction has appeared in several anthologies. His short story "Influencing the Hell out of Time and Teresa Golowitz," was the basis of an episode of the television series The Twilight Zone.
