  • John Henry

    by Julius Lester Year Published: 1999

    Tall tales are a great way to teach children hyperbole. Hyperbole is an over-the-top exaggeration not meant to be taken literally. John Henry is a fun introduction to tall tales and larger than life characters.

  • Shrek

    by William Steig Year Published: 1990

    Shrek by William Steig is the story of a hideous, green ogre that sets out to see the world and ends up saving a princess. This is a great story to help teach children hyperbole. Hyperbole is an exaggerated statement not meant to be taken literally.
