If you can manage to get a hold of an edition that includes the CD done by Hamilton and James Earl Jones please do so The two of them do a fantastic jobI really enjoyed this collection but I have never used formats to listen to a book as I did with this collection I read the titular story out of the picture bookThen I listened to the Audio CD included in this book which only has about half the tales and none of the notes but it s fantastic Then I flipped through the hardback to look at the pictures and notes for the tales I d listened toThen I listened to most of the rest of the stories in a full collection narrated by Andrew Barnes This one does include the end notes and Barnes is a decent narrator but he doesn t hold a candle to James Earl Jones Then I read the last couple of tales from the hardback and looked at all of the illustrationsSo 4 different formats for one book I think that s a record for me at least

Characters ☆ The People Could Fly American Black Folktales Virginia Hamilton õ 2 Review CD with 12 of these stories narrated by noted actor James Earl Jones Full color illustratio. The People Could Fly is a collection of folktales for ages 8 13 It is the winner of Coretta Scott King Awards for both author and illustrator Virginia Hamilton curated and put these traditionally oral stories in written form explaining in the foreword that she retold them with the original dialects in order to retain their true sense of history specifically that of African slaves in AmericaSome lucky readers might get a hold of an edition of this folktale anthology that includes an audio CD of the author s own narration It is a priceless experience to hear these stories told as they were intended and they are actually easier to understand when listened to Reading alone one might find it a bit laborious to work through the incorrect grammar and flip back to the glossary to know the meaning of some words and phrases thus missing the full effect of these rich and clever storiesAge old folklore themes and symbols such as trickster animals and good versus evil are all very present in these tales Several of them are about animals some about people while others mix animals and people But each one leaves the reader with a lesson or unexpected twist at the end The sometimes eerie black and white illustrations are also noteworthy depicting harrowed surreal characters in dire circumstances and beautiful African princesses from a bygone era It would be a mild statement that this book leaves an impression The People Could Fly is one of a kind a true inheritance as it authentically captures the oral tradition of an entire population among us We are privileged to be able to share this piece of human history with our children and students It fills a hole in an array of folktales piled high with romantic tales from the West yet it stands just as strong among our well known folklore
