Learning how to read and create different types of folk literature.
A tall tale is a fictional story that stretches the truth. The heroes of tall tales are "larger than life.“
Sometimes the heroes in a tall tale are completely made up. Sometimes they are based on an actual person who really lived. Through the telling of the story, these characters are given exaggerated characteristics.
