I loved this book as a child, and I love it now. I even have a little Strega Nona doll in my library. I wish I had my own little magic pasta pot.

An adorable book to read aloud for St. Patrick's Day. The story is about a giant who is afraid of the "neighborhood bully." His wife helps him by outsmarting the bully. The accompanying illustrations are charming!

This was an excellent choice to read with my third-graders as a complement to two units they are studying with their classroom teacher: writing adaptations of fairy-tales in ELA, as well as a unit on Mexico, which they are studying in Social Studies.
As we read the book, we discussed how this is similar and also how it is different from the traditional story of Cinderella.
After reading the book we identified the elements of the story such as the setting, the characters, the "magic elements" (none in this version), conflict and conclusion.
The students enjoyed the story!
