June Activities, National Aquarium Guide, Paul Bunyan
JUNE 28 - Aquarium Month, Paul Bunyan Day
Meet the most amazing creatures at the aquarium while giving your child a greater understanding of the diversity of life on our planet and the importance of protecting our oceans and rivers. All this, while having a great time. Be sure to check out the special program that many aquariums offer- sleepovers, classes and more! National Aquarium Guide
Kids will love hearing the folk tale of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his equally over-sized blue ox Babe. According to the legend, when he was just one week old, Bunyan was wearing his father’s clothes. The tale just gets taller from there!
After reading your child the story, ask questions to spark your child’s imagination, such as: What do you think Paul Bunyan used for socks? for buttons on his shirts? for a blanket? for a toothbrush? The main goal is to get your little one to THINK BIG!
AmericanFolklore.net has collected the Paul Bunyan stories here for you to read. These tales are especially fun to tell round the campfire, at a backyard camp out, or under a sheet tent in bed with a flash light. Paul Bunyan Stories including The Birth of Paul Bunyan, Babe the Big Blue Ox, Paul Bunyan and the Frozen Flames, Paul Bunyan and the Log Jam, Paul Bunyan's Kitchen, Paul Bunyan Tames the Whistling River, and Round River Drive.
