Sobre l'autor

Teri Sloat grew up in Salem, in the Willamette Valley where berry crops are grown. As a child, as soon as school was out for the summer, Sloat went to work in the fields. Her and her friends picked berries from 5am until 4pm. Sloat had planned on teaching art in high school. She met her husband in mostra'n més college and before they began teaching high school, they were given a chance to move to rural Alaska and teach elementary school in a small Yup'ik village at the mouth of the Yukon River.

The Hungry Giant of the Tundra is a traditional story with a giant similar to that of Jack and the Giant Beanstalk. The story is about Yupik children playing in a field who chose to not listen to their parents and go inside when it was getting dark. Consequently, the giant was able to find them and takes them to be eaten. With the help of animals, the children were able to escape and the giant falls into the ocean and is swept to see. The illustrations are rather dull in regard to color, but they capture a lot of traditional Yupik clothing and Alaskan scenery and animals. The tone of the book feels cautionary, like a warning to children who do not follow directions. It’s not a book I would pick up again unless I was doing a compare and contrast lesson between tales of different cultures.

Alaskan Connection: Yupik children, Alaskan animals
Activity: Compare and contrast tales across cultures featuring giants, discuss following rules, safety, and consequences.

This is a twist on the familiar book, THERE WAS AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY. Children know the sequence of events until the old lady swallows something impossible (in this story, the entire ocean) and they delight when it all comes back out. This is a great book for teaching sequence and fantasy. I wrote a free teacher PDF, a 38 page printable with activities for school or home. FREE

I like this one. Each letter gets one page, in which illustrations spill out of the capital letter to form a scene surrounding the lower-case letter. The bottom of the page lists the words beginning with the letter, but not all of them: that's where the search-and-find aspect of the book comes in. Then there is an appendix listing further words with the letter in question, but it's sometimes possible to find one or two more words in addition. Beautifully illustrated and fun to share with a child.… (més)
