Don’t we all think we’re different?

geraldineGeraldine the giraffe certainly feels that way.  She’s moved to a new town and is starting a new school and is just That Giraffe Girl to most of the kids.  She meets a girl who wears glasses and likes MATH and organizes her food – good grief!  that’s different?!! – and they become friends.  Eventually, Geraldine and Cassie branch out and find new friends.

Little by little, awful first days and labels can drop away, but it’s not always a smooth process. You might have to play Tree Number Two if you are especially tall, for example.

    I read this book. It is really cute! Especially since we have a giraffe named “Geraldine Geordi” at our library!
