    love you forever....tried reading it to a playgroup of 8 kids plus parents/helpers... quite embarrassing that i couldn't finish it and had to have my assistant do the honours... i was a snivelling mess... the parents all thought it quite hilarious!

    I've done a bit of googling - I think the UK version (the one we have) is 'Smartest Giant' and the US or maybe Aus version is 'Spiffiest'. I didn't even know there was such a word as 'spiffiest'...learn something new every day!

    The others of Julia Donaldson that I love are "Sharing a Shell", "Monkey Puzzle" and "Room on the Broom".

    I also love all the Dr Seuss ones.

    I think you're right, KatBoo. :) I just assumed that "spiffy" is a British term. I'll have a look at our book tomorrow (can't go in now, kiddies are asleep).

    Others that we like:
    - We're Going on a Bear Hunt
    - Go, Dog, Go
    - Richard Scarry's "Cars, Trucks, and Things That Go"
    - Rooster Can't Cock-a-Doodle-Doo
    - Things That Are Most in the World
    - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
    - My Many-Colored Days (Dr. Seuss)
    - What Makes a Rainbow? (This one is beautiful with colored silk ribbons making up a rainbow).

    We have the Spiffiest Giant and its from the US. It was one of D's favorites.

    He also liked all of Sandra Boynton's board books. Barnyard Dance, Going to Bed and Hey Wake Up.

    My LO also really likes "Go Dogs, Go". He also likes books by Byron Barton like "My Car" and "Machines at Work".

    carang, I totally hear you. You're so brave to even try and attempt to read it in front of an audience. I get choked up merely describing the book to perpetual strangers.

    *snivelling mess* Haha - wish I was there. :)
