Synopsis

Giraffes by Jennifer Dussling

Giraffes have been a source of interest for thousands of years; some were even kept as pets in Egypt. As the tallest animals on Earth - some can be nineteen feet tall - giraffes are distinct, and their anatomy makes them only more interesting. For example, they have the same number of neck bones that humans do. Their long necks allow them to reach leaves in tall trees. They are also able to camoflauge, and the same spots that help them blend in with trees are as unique as fingerprints and vary by species. Today, many girafies live in national parks and other protected areas.

About the Author

Jennifer Dussling is lucky enough to have been surrounded by great children's books her whole life. As a teenager, she started working at a children's-only independent bookstore in Pennsylvania, and after graduating from college, she made her way to New York City, where she took a job as an editorial assistant at a publishing company. Since then, she's written over fifty books for kids, both fiction and nonfiction, licensed and original, including Bugs, Bugs, Bugs; Pink Snow and Other Weird Weather; Giant Squid; Slinky Scaly Snakes;and One Little Flower Girl. Jen lives in Tampa, Florida, and when she's not writing or editing, you can find her in her garden, on a volleyball court, or curled up with a good book.
