This story reminded me of my friend who's very tall. She said she use to hunch over so she cold be the height of her school mates. As time goes on she learned to be proud of her height. Now I have a grand daughter who's tall and I tell her stand up, and be proud of who you are. Thanks for sharing. Nicely done.

    Thank you for the exceptional rating and review, littlebit69. I appreciate all of your comments and sharing about your friend and your granddaughter about being tall. I like your advice about standing tall and being proud of who you are. I am glad my story reminded you of these special people in your life. Welcome back to FS, too!

Hi there,

This is a nice little piece. It's hard to judge these things without accompanying pictures as that tends to be what makes the difference in these type of things.

I read a lot of stories like this, or did, to the wee one who's starting to read herself properly.

it has the makings of a good one with the right illustrations.

good stuff
GMG

    Thanks for the review, GMG. I am glad you liked the story. Thanks for sharing about 'the wee one' who is beginning to read herself. That is an exciting time. I value your opinion. I don't know if my stories will go beyond FS or not. It is all very new to me right now.

Awe that little baby giraffe is just so precious!! I've seen videos of him on facebook, I think the whole country is going gaga over him. I would have loved this story as a child, about the tiny baby who looks up to his mom.
Well done, Pam, I really enjoyed this :))

    Thanks for the review, Carol. I am glad you liked my story and the baby giraffe. I guess he is pretty popular! I didn't know that giraffe's are actually very vulnerable because of habitat. I really appreciate your comments.

Hi Pam. I like this so much. Giraffes are beautiful creatures. Your story is geared to young kids and I believe they will understand it as it's written in a flowing and understandable way for them. My one word of caution is to not overuse the word "very." The reason I mention it is probably because I do the same thing. It's been pointed out to me, too, so I'm passing it on to you. A nice read for big and little kids alike. Marilyn

    Thanks for the review, Marilyn. I am glad you liked my story about the giraffe. I am also glad you think it appropriate for the younger set, and older, too! I will look into the use of very. Thanks for the tip.

Hello Pam,
A wonderful story just right for young children. The giraffe is such an
unusual creature. There's nothing really like those loooong legs
and loooong neck. Children will love to read about Beau
who is sooooo tall.
Excellent notes and video enhance the great photograph.
This is sooooo good.
Since Beau is almost six feet tall, he must get six stars.
Well done
Robert

I think this will make a great children's book. Maybe you could do a story about each baby animal in the zoo., Would you be doing your own illustrations?

    Thanks for the review, Earl. I am glad you think this would make a good children's book. Every baby animal in the zoo might be a monumental task. I am going to see how the stories go and am not sure about a book. I would not be doing my own illustrations, as I have no talent as an artist!

I love this story. I have worked with young children and have young grandchildren. I believe they would enjoy this. Fiction is great, but young children, especially are just learning about the world, and non-fiction stories like this one help them learn in a fun way. I can't wait to see more.

Giraffe's are just the coolest animal, mind you I like them all. It's fascinating how completely different they are from each other

This is a lovely story for young children, Pam. I can imagine them chiming in the Sooooooo tall part very easily. The simple love between the mom and little one is delicious.

Terrific job with this. I think everyone should write at least a few children's poems and stories. :)

Gloria

Pam, this is a sweet children's story. I love the picture and like how Beau, the young giraffe, talks highly of his mother and how she looks after him.
Just one small comment. The last three sentences at the end of the story each have the word - but - in them. Slight repetition so you may want to rethink that, perhaps omit the first and maybe use - however - for the last.
I enjoyed this story and think you have briefly introduced Jack, the snowshoe hare, into the next new chapter very well.
Good job on this fun and lighthearted read. ~DD

    Thanks for the review, DD. I am glad you liked my children's story, and I appreciate your comments about it--how Beau talks about his mother and her care of him, and the introduction of Jack, the snowshoe hare. I will take a look at what you mentioned at the end of the story. That is appreciated.

    Any time Pam. I enjoyed the read :-)xx
