HOW DO YOU FEED A HUNGRY GIANT by Caitlin Freedman, illustrated by Shaw Nielson
“When a boy named Oscar discovers a giant—a very hungry giant holding a sign that says “Food Please”—in his backyard, he knows he can’t turn his back on him Yet it’s not easy feeding a hungry giant. A whole pizza disappears in a single gulp. Twelve blueberry muffins, 33 jars of peanut butter, 197 chocolate chip cookies—all just an appetizer. So what is little Oscar to do? Just how do you feed a hungry giant?”
We loved this book. It shows how to love one another even if you don’t have the means to love all the time. The little boy wants to badly to help the kind HUNGRY giant and tries to give him all the food from his house. His mom finally sees what he’s trying to do and helps him out.
We need more books like this, ones that show us we’re never too small to help. Even if we have little we can still make a difference in someone’s life.
The graphics are great in this book too. Nice and bright. Plus there are many pop-up pages and hidden tricks in the book. This book is also an easy read for my 5 year old, making it even more fun. Not only that each book comes with a small recipe book to feed that hungry giant or 5-7 hungry kids.
Perfect book for every kid in your life. Maybe even donate one to your local school.
