Day 18 #Adventchallenge


                                       Once there were giants by Martin Waddell

This is a story which I fell in love with when i used to read it in one of the nurseries I worked at.
When I noticed it on a charity shop shelf, I knew I had to get it for my daughter! I recall being in awe of the beautiful illustrations, by Penny Dale, as they are beautifully drawn with lovely subtle colours.

The story follows a little girl who is surrounded by giants in her home. But soon, she too begins to grow and end up becoming a giant herself! It is a lovely story to help children who feel pretty small, to understand that even they will grow up one day!!

Another beautiful story in the advent collection! And my daughter likes it too!!
