    With the new stress on myths and legends in the Common Core, this set becomes a must-have addition to school and public libraries. Students can also be directed to think about the differences in legends and tall tales and other genres of writing. Looking critically at sources and culling opinion and exaggeration from fact are a large part of the new national ELA standards. A set such as this one in a comic format can spur valuable discussions on the different ways data can be presented. Plus, these stories are so fun and full of adventure, students will not want to put them down. Each title in the set features:

    • An introduction providing some background on the legends and a listing of characters
    • A timeline that highlights the nonfiction elements of these stories
    • Illustrations and comic book format that is inviting struggling readers
    • Supports the Common Core ELA curriculum, which requires students to critically evaluate a multitude of media formats to cull relevant information

    Titles include:

    Annie Oakley


    Davy Crockett


    Johnny Appleseed
