Courses by Rachel:

Discovering American Folktales begins with an introductory lesson that helps parents and students explore what a story is and how different types of stories exist from around the world. It then moves into a fun and engaging look at the folktales of Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Uncle Remus.
