Summary

Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe is the story of Josephine -- a giraffe with a short neck who wishes she had a long neck like other giraffes. Through her friendship with Hazel the Elephant and J.R. the giraffe, Josephine comes to understand that being unique is what makes her special.

 


Notes

  • Similar in plot to the week of episodes and LP featuring Josephine, this story is a much simpler version of the tale about the insecure giraffe with the short neck. The major difference is that only three characters are mentioned in this book version: Josephine, her friend Hazel the Elephant, and J.R. the giraffe.
  • A digital version of this book can be found among the extra features on the 2005 A Day at the Circus DVD.
