The Smartest Giant in Town
Axel Scheffler and Julia Donaldson

This wonderfully illustrated book is all about the beauty of helping others. George the giant just got a brand new outfit that finally makes him feel good about himself again. But what makes him feel even better is helping out others. So when he gives all of his new clothes away to different animals, he may not look like the smartest giant with the best fashion sense anymore, but definitely the kindest.

This book combines a heartwarming story with a great introduction to adverbs and adjectives. Students can use the story to identify grammatical structures and practice by reading aloud or making their own sentences.
