    Epub ar1web.co ð John Henry eBook Ç john ebok, henry book, John Henry MOBIThis is the story of John Henry; I’m sure most people know this one Julius and Jerry got together to make this their version of the famous folktale I like the tone of the book it’s bright and happy and larger than life I even like so many of his word choices The mountain was as hard as anger There were wonderful phrases like that I don’t know why but I don’t really care for this version of the tale It’s not bad simply not for me There are several other tellings that I feel are much betterThe kids enjoyed this The nephew thought it was cool how he could sing

    Epub ar1web.co ð John Henry eBook Ç john ebok, henry book, John Henry MOBIWith regard to Julius Lester's 1994 John Henry it is in particular illustrator Jerry Pinkney's 1995 Caldecott Honour winning accompanying illustrations which I have always found and ever since first reading the book as a library copy a couple of years ago very much personally and visually impressive expressive For although Pinkney's pictorial renderings are at times perhaps almost a trifle too overly busy for my eyes

    Epub ar1web.co ð John Henry eBook Ç john ebok, henry book, John Henry MOBIThis is a very nice version of the John Henry story I don't remember ever hearing about Ferret Faced Freddy and the bet that John Henry made with him which then turned him into Frederick the Friendly This also tells the story of John Henry clearing a boulder that dynamite couldn't break and racing a steam drill to create a tunnel through a mount

    Epub ar1web.co ð John Henry eBook Ç john ebok, henry book, John Henry MOBIWhat a wonderful book Enjoyed by all my children young and older a tall tale about John Henry We learned about Tall Tales in Traditional Literature and in the story of John Henry in History class so this was a great addition to those lessons My kids loved it The pictures were big and detailed and of course the preschoolers loved the trains A little on the long side at least a level 4 reading level But the writing Oh the writing Just beautiful Next to the mountain he didn't look much bigger than a wish that wasn't going to come trueThese and many other analogies of such an unusual flavor made this book a must have to our home school library Highly recommended

    Epub ar1web.co ð John Henry eBook Ç john ebok, henry book, John Henry MOBIAn interesting introduction to the legend of John Henry although for whatever reason I had the song Big John stuck in my head before reading this which isn't the same John John Henry is one of those little known folk heroes and I wish there was on him than there tends to be Unfortunately this tends to be one of those books that is distracting from the actual story or making of a mess for those who are sincerely interested And one of the reasons I gave such a low score to the book is the attempted modernization of some of the events The illustrations are a bit dark colored and jammed so don't often contribute much to the story in my opinion although
