    The stories and tall tales for kids books I chose for this list are colonial or post-colonial American folktales. I was quite happy that I was able to include a diverse range of American folktales on this list: Creole, African-American, American Southwest, pioneer tales and more. In creating the Story Bookcase (), they brought a new twist to Sapien-style vertical book storage by allowing the user to position the shelves facing forward or to the side. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, Story holds dozens of books in a very compact footprint/5(34).

      This dramatic story had me by the heart strings. Typically, you wouldn't think you'd be able to relate to an 8-foot tall, Filippino immigrant. This story puts you right in his shoes and makes you feel strongly for him and for his British-born, tomboy sister, who is meeting him for the first time. It was a very enjoyable book, with an original plot/5(34). At just over 5 feet tall, no one thought Mamie Johnson, also known as "Peanut" because of her size, would become a baseball star. But she sure could pitch! The author collaborated with the actual Mamie Johnson to tell the riveting — and real — story of how Peanut Johnson became one of three women to play professionally in the Negro Baseball.
