There is something about giraffes that young children find irresistible. Of course their very long necks do set them apart from other animals, but their patterned skin, large dark eyes, horns, and tasseled tails also make them quite unique.

In this simple little board book wonderful full-color illustrations of giraffes eating, running, drinking, sleeping and peering over tree tops are paired with a minimal text. Little children are given a wonderful giraffe filled bookish experience that will charm them and make them smile, or even laugh.
