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 and work with them to find creative ways to fill those needs as best we can? Perhaps How Do You Feed a Hungry Giant? will give you some ideas.

Caitlin Friedman also includes a small cookbook with giant sized recipes that will be fun to make with the kids: a huge burger, a pizza sized Chocolate-chip cookie, and a giant blueberry muffin, just to start.

How Do You Feed a Hungry Giant? is a fun and colorful book to explore together.
