Listen to an audio clip
Sticking up in between his two ears are two knobbly horns. Now move your fingers up along the curve of the giraffe's long neck. He's got a short fringe along the left side, like the bristles of a nail brush. Can you feel it?
Move up the picture and explore the giraffe's body - don't forget he's upside down. You'll find his two front legs sticking up to the right. Then trace left, across his tummy to find just one of his back legs sticking up. The other one is pointing down to the bottom left hand corner of the page. Trace down this leg to find the pointy hoof below his knobbly ankles.
