It can be fun to make up your own "Tall Tales" about Paul Bunyan. But we also have some traditional tales that Carol sent in to us.

Paul’s parents were a bit worried about what the townspeople would think of their huge son.  So they built a huge cradle and floated it in the ocean off the coast of Maine.  The waves rocked him to sleep each night.  One day Paul started to bounce up and down in his cradle.  His bouncing started a seventy-foot tidal wave that washed away towns and villages.  After that Paul’s parents moved into the woods of Maine where everyone would be safer.
