The Story of Gerard Giraffe

When Jericho the Giraffe is born with a short neck, the herd laughs at him. But his parents worry, "He won't be able to eat the leaves and branches high on the acacia trees. And he won't be able to drink from the watering holes."

Giraffe was a regular giraffe in every way except one. She had long, legs with knobby knees. She had beautiful brown spots that ran from up and down the entire length of her body. She had soft tufts of fur on the tippy top of her head, and eyes soft and large as fluffy pancakes. Her shiny black hooves looked like two toed tap shoes and so, she would often dance and prance around the savannah singing, “I am a lovely giraffe! I am kind and sweet! I love being me!” And she did love being herself…most of the time. That is, until one of the other giraffes teasingly reminded Giraffe of her very, very short neck.

My kids and I started working on this one in the car. I hope to actually write it out. The gist of it is that Geri the Giraffe decides to try out some local classes to help with his height issues . He kicks his way through karate, swims new strokes in the pool, even learns to lift weights and pump up his muscles at the gym. But when he joins a local yoga class and perfects the "giraffe pose," he finally finds a solution to his challenges and he's no shorty anymore.
