Imagine Your Story

Tall Tales, Folk Tales, Mythology, and Fantasy

After the success of 2019's Apollo Anniversary presentation we decided to expand our options for elementary school and public libraries interested in summer presentations.  Since the 2020 Summer Reading Program's theme of "Imagine Your Story"is heavily tied to Tall Tales, Folk Tales, Mythology, and Fantasy it made sense to split them into 4 groups.  Below is a table showing the grade bands and the topics covered.  Note that for each one there are some suggested books that tie into that theme.

"Le Gros Fromage"

What if the Cow that jumped over the moon really made the Milky Way?
