There are various themes here in this story as arrogance, consequences of selfishness, love, and compassion, the concept of salvation, etc. Good deeds are always rewarded whereas bad deeds are always punished. Here, we simply find the arrogance of the giant and his selfishness against the children which have brought bad results for him.

Yes, God punishes those who are cruel and very selfish. Children are supposed to be very innocent and babies of God. They are known for their simplicity. Their presence is a sign of a good omen. We can get a fine example from this story about God's punishment to the giant. He feels guilty himself for his bad deeds.
The snow-covered up the grass with its white cloak and the Frost painted all the trees silver
The giant heard the sweet and melodious chirping of a bird when he was lying in his bed.
The spring never came to the Giant's Garden as the selfish giant didn't allow the children to play in his Garden.
He realized his mistake when the children stopped visiting the garden and the garden never experienced the spring season.
in this short story, we find the perfect use of personification. Here, winter, frost, snow, north wind, hail, and little child have been wonderfully personified. Among these, winter, frost, and snow have been personified as feminine gender with unique force whereas north wind, hail, and little child have been personified as masculine gender with powers.
Here, the little boy is compared to the god.
This story can be read like a fairytale, where the children, the seasons,
the tree, the corner of the garden, the snow, the wind, and the frost are all used as symbolism. Interpret those symbols.
