"Giraffes" was a great informational text for young readers. It had about one sentence per page, leaving the majority of the page with the picture. First off, I liked how this book used actual photographs instead of drawings or paintings because it gives the book more of a realistic and advanced setting. The book not only includes a table of contents but a glossary, an index, wildlife organization information, various giraffe books, and multiple giraffe websites for the reader to learn even more about giraffes. This also gave me the sense of reading an actual textbook, which could make readers feel like they're reading something important. The book also added something new, a simple grass design around the page number on each page. I loved how the author was able to add a small piece of fun colored illustration since the rest of the book was a photograph against a white page. The main idea of this book is to educate readers on the giraffe. It was also to make readers aware of the harm in poaching giraffes. ( )

This lovely new title looks at the lives of giraffes - from their birth to growing up, how they feed, grow, rest, and clean. It features glorious, large colour photographs, which show the giraffe at every stage of its life. The simple, engaging text allows young readers to understand a giraffe's life. There is also information about the threats that giraffes face in the wild and how we can help them to survive in the future.
