What I Loved: The illustrations were perfect. The giants looked so large while everything else was so small. The way the animals were drawn, was just beautiful. The wolf on one page, just looked amazing. I was very pleased with the art throughout the book, and my daughter appreciated it too. She had a lot of questions on each page because there was so much to look at.
How I Felt: So, I have talked about this before, but I don’t read the synopsis on books…a LOT. I grabbed this one because the cover stood out to me and the title seemed really interesting. So, as we start reading this book, I know it’s about a girl named Greta and some giants because the title told me so. Then, as the story unfolds, the Giants are building industrial buildings and driving cars and it smacked me in the face.
This book is about humans and their destruction of Earth! The book took on a whole new meaning for me. My daughter seemed to have the same realization as me, and then she was asking more questions, which was wonderful.
To Read or Not To Read: This is a wonderful book for ANY child. This book should be read in schools everywhere. It’s a great Earth Day book and even has information in the back on Earth Day and on Greta Thunberg.
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Greta lives in a forest with many animal friends. One day they come to her very upset. The giants are ruining their forest. They are worse than they have been in the past. Greta sees their destruction and knows she must do something to make a change. She stands at the edge of the forest with a sign that has “STOP” written on it. Soon a child joins her, and then another, and another, until the whole forest is there with her.
Can they get the giant’s attention and stop them from ruining their forest? You’ll have to pick this book up to find out!
