Why giraffe has a long neck

🦒The animated illustrations by Claudia Lloyd from Tiger Aspect Productions brings the story to life how a short and stumpy Giraffe became all tall and got a long neck.

🦒It’s a fun read for kids aged 4 and above but we read it everyday for our little boy who is soon to be two because he loves to listen and look at pictures.

Pages from the book

🦒This book gives a lot of talking points about tummy troubles, remedies, friends, tasting different foods like honey and introducing different animals and their appearances, new words.

🦒Reading is very easy with repetition and rhyming words like
Short and stumpy, slurp slurp, stop stop, prickly pear, stretched and stretched.

🦒We read about weather. It’s is great time to explain about new concepts and ideas like Autumn , Spring, Summer, Winter.

🦒We tasted some sweet African honey just like Giraffe to alleviate tummy troubles.

🦒The story roams around how animals of the forest help Giraffe all the time because they are friends. A complex theory of friendship in simplified story by Claudia Lloyd.
