This book is good for teaching a bit about culture, wisdom, and using illustrations for comprehension for older children.

I loved the fact that the giant is too big to fit on the page. This is a sweet Irish tale of kindness.

This is one of my favorite Eve Bunting books. The illustrations are beautiful it would make a great read aloud.

This was a great story to 'tell' to my five classes of 1st/2nd grade elementary school kids in connection with St. Patrick's Day holiday last month. Most kids in this age group (7 and 8 yr. olds) have already heard or read about the most famous mythical Irish giant, Finn McCool, but this new book by Eve Bunting depicted him in a somewhat different light than earlier tales have done and delivered an important message that I thought they would like to hear. So, with a little elaboration and acting out on my part, Finn McCool and the Great Fish was not only a very fun story to tell, but was engaging for the kids to listen to, as well. Normally, when I do my telling, I don't bring the book or books with me that my stories come from, as the main idea behind storytelling (as opposed to story-reading) is to try and inspire the kids to use their OWN imagination in visualizing what the author's characters might look like in their own minds. Thus, books with colorful, intriguing covers sitting on my lap while I'm telling would become a distraction. However, this particular book is so awesomely illustrated that AFTER the 'telling' I brought it out and turned each page for the kids to ooh and ahh and comment over... I think this Finn McCool story will be one they'll remember in connection with the March Irish holiday for many St. Patty's Days to come.
