Synopsis

The Princess and the Giant by Caryl Hart

Princess Sophie is fed up. She's EXHAUSTED and it's all because that grumpy old giant can't sleep - his stomps and stamps keep everyone awake ALL night. But Princess Sophie is a resourceful sort of girl and, as she reads her favourite book of fairy tales, she wonders if she might just have the answer. She bravely climbs the beanstalk and takes a tasty bowl of porridge, a teddy to cuddle and even a cosy blanket - all to help the giant sleep. But, oh dear, nothing works until finally Sophie hits upon the perfect thing - the giant needs a bedtime story! Phew! Everyone lives (and sleeps) happily ever after but when Sophie then teaches the giant how to read himself, it is the most perfect ending of all.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
