The Girl on the Yellow Giraffe
The city can be a huge, daunting place. People often ask, "Do you really think it is a suitable place to raise a kid? Aren't you afraid?" Since I myself grew up in Manhattan, New York, I can say with full confidence that no, there's really nothing to be afraid of. In fact, if anything, growing up in an urban environment can prove to be invaluably enriching. The city was my playground - from Central Park to Coney Island, I found endless sources of adventure.
The Girl on the Yellow Giraffe shows readers that growing up in a city can be a wonderful and magical experience. All it takes is a little imagination to transform the cityscape into a land of endless possibilities, complete with castles, dragons, wizards, battles, and giants. What is recognized by adults as simply mundane things like construction sites or fire hydrants take on entirely new meaning through the eyes of The Girl on the Yellow Giraffe.
Children will love Ronald Himler's sweet storyline and beautiful illustrations. They'll definitely be inspired to take the everyday and transform it into the spectacular after reading this book!
