How to be a Giraffe
by Thea Baker
Joffrey might have horns, a tail and a long neck, but his stripy fur is causing quite the stir.
Everyone knows that giraffes have spots! But if Joffrey isn’t a giraffe, what could he be?
Lots of fun to read aloud, this charming and heartfelt picture book celebrates the joy of embracing who we are.
