I was strolling through a small bookstore in Orlando and came across Giraffe Problems, by Jory John. The wonderful cover caught my attention so I picked it up and began reading. The story is about Edward, a giraffe who doesn’t like his neck – it’s too long, too bendy, too dopey, too patterned, etc. I called my twenty-two year old daughter over and we read it together. I laughed so loudly, my daughter scolded me. This is a delightful story about accepting our unique design. I highly recommend the book. I guarantee you won’t be able to read it without laughing alongside your kids.
