It's World Giraffe Day!

You may or may not know that I am obsessed with giraffes. I have been in love with giraffes ever since I was a little girl, and they remained one of my absolute favorite animals. Ever. Because of that, I wanted to share that today is World Giraffe Day!

Before I dive into the book portion of this post, I just want to take a minute to share an organization that I somehow didn't know existed until a few months ago--the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. Somehow in all of my years of giraffe love, it never occurred to me that there might be a foundation that focuses solely on giraffes. It's also pretty neat because GCF is the only NGO organization that dedicates itself solely to the lives of giraffes in Africa. If you're at all interested in wildlife conservation or giraffes, then you should definitely head over to their website to find out more about them and what they do! They also have some of the cutest and coolest giraffe-themed clothing and the option to adopt a giraffe for the lowest tier of five dollars a month. (And no, I am in no way affiliated with GCF, I'm just super passionate about giraffes and I think they are awesome.)

In honor of World Giraffe Day, I'm taking a mini break from posting about books I usually read and am instead going to share some awesome books that feature giraffes These are mainly children's books because apparently giraffes aren't cool enough for adults to write about. I know, I know, I'm bitter about it, too. Now let's jump into the books!


What (if any) is your favorite animal? Have you ever had a chance to meet one? Share your animal thoughts in the comments!

  1. So cute! I love giraffes, too.

  2. I didn't know giraffes had their own day, how cool. I'm a huge animal lover in general, but I really love dogs and birds most.
