How giraffes got their long necks
We travel around the African Savannah with Mary the explorer. In Africa there live many different animals; some big and some small, others were nice and others more proud. Then we meet the giraffe and together we discover the secret of how she stretched her neck.
Mary’s library Mouse travels through the words of her friend to a far away continent called Africa, where the sun shines so much that it makes the landscape yellow. Sometimes it is difficult to find green grass and the animals try their best to enjoy the fresher food.
Mary just came back from her journey to the far away Africa. She discovered that giraffes did not always have such long necks. She can’t wait to share her adventure with her friend, the library mouse.
She tells him how she crossed the ocean full of colourful fish until she reached a strange place where it was very hot and the sunrise was amazing
There she saw lots of animals; a big elephant, a beautiful gazelle, a very strong gnu, even a fast meerkat and a cheerful zebra. And lastly, a giraffe that kept trying to eat the patch of fresh grass that she found, but it was impossible.
Her determination made her stretch her neck little by little until she reached the green, juicy leaves in the trees. Once she got food from the tall trees she never worried about finding fresh grass again.
This story shows us that perseverance without conflict is very important to become a better person every day.
