Giant Island is the story of a brother and sister who are taken to an island with their grandpa and don’t understand why it’s called “Giant Island” when it looks so small. The grandpa goes there to fish while the kids explore the island and find a cave with mysterious things in it! By the end of their time on the island, they figure out why it’s called Giant Island and look forward to visiting the island again!
When I was reading the story, I was exploring the island right along with the kids and didn’t quite pick up on the clues also until they did. This island would be a fun one to visit – my favorite part was when they went swimming inside bubbles! The whole story is interesting and different from other ones I’ve read; I like it a lot. I like Jane Yolen’s other dinosaur books as well, so I’m glad I liked this one after reading it. The pictures are colorful, and I like how they fill the whole page – they help tell the story just by looking at them. I’m sure that kids of all ages will enjoy this story because it’s magical!
