The Giraffe Who Was Afraid of Heights Book Review


My son adores giraffes! His best friend is a stuffed giraffe he got for his 1st birthday after feeding them at the zoo. He will not sleep or nap without him and cries when I have to put him in the washer. Since he loves giraffes I try to do my best to find cute giraffe stuff to make him smile. As soon as he saw the book Giraffe Who Was Afraid of Heights he squealed and yelled "Giafe".

I knew he would be excited to read this book. I love when he climbs onto my lap and sits quietly while I read a book to him. Its the only time he is sitting still is when he is reading, otherwise hes a wild boy! 



The book is a sweet story about a young giraffe boy who is afraid of heights so he cannot stand tall as a giraffe should. His Mama and Daddy giraffe send him on a journey to go to see the doctor to help him with his fear of heights. Along the way he meets two other animal friends with their own fears and together they all set out to see the doctor to help them.



In the end they need each others help to survive a wild crocodile and by doing so they each over come the thing they fear the most. Its a wonderful story about overcoming your fears, friendship and kindness. The back of the book there are great facts about each of the animal characters in the story and how they live in the wild. There is a match up game and even a section you can cut out.



You can buy The Giraffe Who Was Afraid of Heights from Sylvan Dell Publishing website.


Sylvan Dell Publishing has many great book for kids about animals, nature and the universe. I would love to have any of their books for my son. We have a few favorites on our wish list like Big Cat, Little Kitty and Meet the Planets.



* I was not paid or compensated for this post. I was sent a free copy of this book for my review by the publisher/PR company. The opinions are 100% mine and may vary from others.
