folktales like this one Wow Inspiring, heartbreaking, poetic, and intense This is an amazing tale that by some act of neglect I had never heard before It is beautifully told and illustrated in this edition The references to eye witnesses and how the story may or may not be true made it quite magical as a story mythos.The beauty of this story is that flying is being used as an analogy for many things of escape from slavery, of hope, of the lost African traditions and culture, of second chances The story manages to Wow Inspiring, heartbreaking, poetic, and intense This is an amazing tale that by some act of neglect I had never heard before It is beautifully told and illustrated in this edition The references to eye witnesses and how the story may or may not be true made it quite magical as a story mythos.The beauty of this story is that flying is being used as an analogy for many things of escape from slavery, of hope, of the lost African traditions and culture, of second chances The story manages to convey hope, resourcefulness, and pride possibly the only things allowing enslaved people to survive while at the same time acknowledging the unforgivable losses, and the heartbreak experienced even in the midst of victory Truly poignant.I didn t realize it beforehand, but the content is a bit much for a 5 year old I m thinking maybe 8 would be the youngest I would have wanted to read it There are a lot of mentions of whipping slaves, and pictures of the whip, and of people who can barely stand up due to the hardships of slavery I am not sure whether it was implied that some of them were dying as they were called up to fly, but it was definitely that intense The people could fly is a folktale because it has all four parts it needs for it to be one Its past from generation to generation Yes because on page 67, lines 122 123 it clearly says They say who could not fly told about the people that could fly to their children People cant fly so that is another part of a folktale which is super natural powers are icludeded.On page 65, line 62 she is flying on the air with her wings Thats not normal that people fly Thirdly for it to be a folktale The people could fly is a folktale because it has all four parts it needs for it to be one Its past from generation to generation Yes because on page 67, lines 122 123 it clearly says They say who could not fly told about the people that could fly to their children People cant fly so that is another part of a folktale which is super natural powers are icludeded.On page 65, line 62 she is flying on the air with her wings Thats not normal that people fly Thirdly for it to be a folktale it has to iclude a lesson, what he wants the reader to learn is that theres always hope.On page 65, lines 58 59 it is showed At last there has to be icluded traditions and culture.On page 63 it says Says that long in Africa That means the protagonists are from Africa Also were it says Many of the people were captured for slavery On page 63, line 6 it is stated.This means they are Africans during slavery time in the U.S For me it was a well made book that tried to tell to the people that everything is possible I do recommend this book for those who enjoy reading folktales A Wolf and Little Daughter 1st Draft A Wolf and Little Daughter to ok place in Little Daughters house and the forestal Papa, who lives with Little Daughter, told her not to go outside in the forest alone because there was a Wolf that could kill her, bit Little Daughter didnt followed Papa s instructions When Little Daughter was picking un flowers in the forest she san the Wolf who was getting closer and closer The Wolf asked Little Daughter to sing the song she was singing before while she was picking up the flowers He told her to sing the song again and again and then when Little Daughter Pit a pat away from the Wolf she shut the door when the wolf was comino behind her.The folktale that I got is A Wolf and Little Daughter and it is a folktale because it has all the four elements for it to be one First of all it has supernatural powers, when the wolf says sing that sweetest song, he is talking and that is supernatural Also folktales are past from generation to generation In the first page were it says Authors Study the author says that these story s were just told and that she found them in old manuscripts Thirdly it tells a lesson Yes it does when it says Papa didn t want Little Daughter to run in the forest, where there were wolves on the first paragraph of the first page The lesson is that you can never be alone and have to obey orders At last it includes culture and traditions but you can only infer that from the illustrations because it is not stated in the text I really recommend this book, it is really interesting and it keeps you wantingandThe People Could Fly is a folktale about Africans knowing about magic and being able to fly This folktale tells how Africans were brought to America and mistreated to the point where they died because of the hard work or escaped from their misery It also talks about how the slave forgot how to fly when they were brought to America The people that could fly now slaves that could fly were able to I really recommend this book, it is really interesting and it keeps you wantingandThe People Could Fly is a folktale about Africans knowing about magic and being able to fly This folktale tells how Africans were brought to America and mistreated to the point where they died because of the hard work or escaped from their misery It also talks about how the slave forgot how to fly when they were brought to America The people that could fly now slaves that could fly were able to fly away from their misery thanks to Toby s magic word, but the slaves that couldn t fly had to stay A folktale is a story that has no author and has passed from generation to generation A folktale also has to have a lesson or explain how or why something happened, it has to have something super natural, and come from an specific culture On The People Could Fly we can find evidence of this story being passed from generation to generation on page 67 line 122 123, They say the children of the once who could not fly told their children And now, me, I have told you We can find evidence of this folktale being from the African American slave culture in page 64 line 6 and lines 10 11, Then many people were capture for slavery The folks were full of misery, then got sick with the up and down of the sea This gives us evidence because we know Africans were brought to America to be slaves On page 64 line 23 30 there is also evidence of African American slave culture, The slaves labored in the filed from sunup to sundown with prayer knowledge we know that Africans Americans slave had to work a lot This story has a lot of super natural things but one of them is people flying The evidence of the people flying is on page 63 line 1, They say people could fly Also there is evidence in page 65 line 61, The young women lifted one foot in the air then the other In page 66 line 108 109 and line 106 there is also evidence of African American slave culture, The old and young who were called slaves and could fly joined hands And the old man, old Toby flew behind him So the last part of a folktale that we are missing is the lesson or explanation This folktale doesn t have a lesson but it has an explication of how African Americans slaves escaped and or died, the evidence is in the whole book In pages 64,65 and 66, it explains how slaves were mistreated which caused them to escape, or caused them the death
