How Do You Feed a Hungry Giant? by Caitlin Friedman is a super cute and interactive (pop-up, pull-here) book about a boy who finds a hungry giant, with a “Food Please” sign, hanging out in his back yard. The boy generously empties his family’s fridge in order to sate this giant’s hunger, but it takes the eventual help of his mom to fill the giant’s belly.

How Do You Feed a Hungry Giant? may also be a way to talk to your children about the people we see holding signs of their own (we saw two such men today as we were out and about). So many of us are blessed and have plenty to eat each day, but there are those nearby who are not. How can we help our children to see the needs of others
