Having 5 kids age ranging from 1 – 14 there is always a book to read, especially the little ones before bed so I was thrilled to review a children’s book called Real giraffes wear high heel shoes.
As I am known as Daddygiraffe and they are my little giraffes this book sounded ideal so just before Freddie’s bedtime this was the story of choice.
Firstly when we start the book and see a picture of a Sami the giraffe wearing high heels Freddie thought it was hilarious and said he’s to tall to be wearing them.
Sami is a giraffe who loves to wear high heels but tries to join in with the other group of giraffes but something always goes wrong for poor Sami.
despite the problems Sami loves his heals, love the way they look and the way that they feel and goes about his day.
True to himself Sami keeps trying to join in with the other giraffes even inviting them to him birthday party which he didn’t think anyone would go to but Freddie was positive that Sami could do it and would get friends in the end.
It’s hard to keep a very energetic 4-year-old in one place and to get their attention for long enough but this seamed to do the trick.
The book from start to finish is full of brightly colourful illustrations with lots going on to grab his attention.
The story is easy enough to follow and understand also sending a message that its ok to be who you want to be and who you are, that you don’t have to change to please other people.
So after reading the book what does Freddie think, an imaginative 4-year-old.
Freddie loved the idea of animals in high heels and enjoyed the book throughout giving him a giggle along the way.
I asked him once the book was finished if he could rate the book out of 10 what would it be and he rated it…..
100 out of 10!
Where can I get this book?
