A young giraffe was drinking water from a lake and a young bug was sleeping on a leaf. The little bug accidentally rolled off the leaf and landed in the left ear of the young giraffe. The young giraffe tried her best to get it out but she could not. Bunny, Beaver, Bird, and Lion watched the young giraffe struggling and the bunny asked the giraffe to do bunny hops but the bug stayed put in the young giraffe's left ear. The beaver's suggestion did not work either and the bug began to buzz inside the young giraffe's ear. The bird tried to poke inside the young giraffe's ear but did not succeed. It was the lion's turn to try and he roared so loudly that the bug got scared and went deeper into the giraffe's ear. Her friends did not know how to help her. Her big brother told her he would help her out. What did he do for the bug to finally fly out of the young giraffe's ear?
Giraffe Has a Bug by Robert DiDonato is an adorable story that conveys a beautiful message to young readers and encourages them to talk out their problems so that there is a solution to them. The author's illustrations add color and movement to the wonderful story, making the concept clear to youngsters. It is a good story for parents and tutors to read out loud to children to help them understand the importance of talking out their problems, just how the young giraffe and her big brother did - TALK IT OUT.
