Giraffes
By Vickie Chao
Rewritten as a short reader by Cindy Grigg
  

1     What's the tallest animal in the world? The giraffe is. They are as tall as a two-story building. Being tall helps them get food. Giraffes eat leaves from trees. They like to eat fruit, too, from the treetops. Even baby giraffes are tall. When first born, a calf is six feet tall!
 
2     Giraffes have four long legs. Front legs are longer than the back legs. Giraffes have very long necks. Giraffes are mammals. Mammals have hair or fur. A mother mammal feeds her baby milk from her body.
