I bought this along with 11 other Julia Donaldson Books(All Board Books). I did a lot of research before buying and building my 15 month old daughters first library along with Van Fleet, Eric Carle, Dr Suess etc. At first it was all about pictures then sounds then role play and now its the story in 12-13 months she has grown with these books and loves anything we introduce now. Each book has a 12-14 page story which gives you abundance of opportunity to spend quality time with your little one. Reading is just one of the things you can do with these. They are illustrated so very well with vibrant colours and end to end pictures that you have so much to explore if you introduce reading really young. I have copied some of the illustrations on to a A4 sheet given my daughter to color. Just buy when it says Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler together on a book.

This book is so much fun and so lovely. I really like reading it to my son and he likes to listen to the story and look at the images. The Julia donaldson range of books are fabulous and this is no different. The pictures are cute and child like and overall, I just cant fault them,

I loved this story, with plenty of humour, colourful illustrations, and an easy to follow text. I am looking forward to reading this at school, and there will be plenty of ideas for follow up work. It shows that kindness can be appreciated and rewarded.

This story is about a giant giving up his things to help others. What a brilliant way to teach children how to think and help others more in need than themselves.

My 5 year old loves this book it doesn't rhyme all the way through like Julia Donaldsons other books however George the giant has a little song with simple rhyming that builds as his journey continues so it's a good one for testing your child's memory skills.
