There were five  questionnaires employed in this research. The first questionnaire was given to the students to investigate the need of the students on reading materials based on Kalimantan Legends. The second questionnaire was employed to know the favorite legends of students. From the need analysis result, it can be concluded that students are interested in reading (68.30 %), they like to read stories (90 %). The students are interested to read their local stories (95 %), and they like the stories with adequate illustrations to help them understand the stories completely (70 %). On the other hand, they thought that the stories they have in their textbooks were not interesting (65%).
