The Lovereading4Kids comment
First Reading: Level Two.
This charming African folktale reveals how giraffes got their long necks - and why rhinos are so grumpy. Titles in this level stretch the reader with more advanced storylines, more text and more complicated sentence structure and vocabulary. 32 pages in length with the main story being up to 250 words alongside some reading-related puzzles. Full of lively, quirky illustrations. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.
Other First Reading Level 2 titles include How Elephants Lost their Wings, Clever Rabbit and the Lion, and The Dragon and The Phoenix.
