Yours Sincerely, Giraffe

By Megumi Iwasa

Illustrated by Jim Takabatake

Book Source: Borrowed from library

Book Status: Available

Honestly Mom borrowed this for me because of the penguin on the front. I am glad she did. It was a fun read about a giraffe who sends a letter on the Pelican Express to the other end of the horizon. A penguin receives it and they become pen pals.  The book is their letters.  They do eventually meet. The giraffe even tries to dress like a penguin but um, yea that didn’t work.

I liked that there was a penguin. It was interesting that a penguin and a giraffe spoke the same language.  It was a fast read and a good way to make my day better.

I recommend this book for class libraries. It would be neat if the class did penpals with another class from a different country or state.  I also recommend this to people who like giraffes and penguins.
