Synopsis

The Short-Sighted Giraffe by A. H. Benjamin

Giraffe can't see very well. But when her animal friends make her a pair of glasses, she decides she would look silly with them! Instead of wearing them, and to prove to her friends she doesn't need glasses, Giraffe starts putting on protective clothing to stop her hurting herself every time she trips up or stumbles. After a series of mishaps, Giraffe is wearing a helmet, trousers, boots, a rubber ring, a bell and a ladder and the other animals think she looks ridiculous! They put the glasses on her at night, and when Giraffe catches her reflection in the water pool in the morning she is shocked! After taking off all the new clothes, she is left with the glasses - and finds she looks rather smart!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
