About the book:

Curiosity is a wonderful thing. It is how we learn. This is the main premise of the story of Raffy the first Giraffe. The story of Raffy shows how curiosity and a strong desire can have a dramatic effect. This somehow parallels the lives of our growing children. Like Raffy, children want to know everything that goes on around them.  It is in this aspect that the book drives its main point across. It has a subtle approach to help children understand the concept of evolution but at the same time provides an entertainment value that tickles a child’s interest.
