How the Giraffe Got Its Neck
Once upon a time, there was a giraffe. Then it had a baby giraffe. The Baby explored anywhere she could, but later it got put in the zoo. When she was there she saw a flower. The flower was a purplish-pink color and had tons of petals that were smooth, furry, and soft. It was short and the stem was like soggy celery! The poor hungry baby wanted to eat the flower, but she couldn't reach it! So she stretched and STRETCHED, and STRETCHED! Until . . . she had a HUGE neck! She went from 2 feet tall to 18 feet tall! She told all of the giraffes to stretch! Now it's the tallest mammal in the world! And that's how the giraffe got its neck.
