Another beautifully illustrated entry in the Serendipity series.

The moral of this one is "everybody's different; it's okay to be yourself", and it's a nice tale of a giraffe who is too tall to play with any of the other young animals and becomes self conscious about her height. Eventually, she meets another young giraffe and becomes okay with being tall. I do wish that she had eventually reconciled with the other young animals but, other than that, it's a lovely story.

Excellent book for young children! I recommend this book to children because it is going to help them understand that animals are not the same, and that not because they're different they can't become friends with someone. The story is about a giraffe named Memily, she had a long neck and was trying to find a friend. However the animals in the jungle didn't want to be her friend because she had a long neck. Memily obviously felt sad about herself. At the end she finally found a friend that explained her that not because she had a long neck meant that she couldn't be his friend. I was really happy with the end of the book because Memily was really excited of finding a friend. I read this book when I was a child, and I still remember every part of it. It really helped me to understand that animals are different just like humans.
