Dr Karen Treisman
Even though Gilly the Giraffe has many wonderful things in her life, she sometimes lacks confidence.
Why does she have to stand out so much with her long neck, her long black tongue and her mosaic patches? Why do some of the other animals point and laugh at her?
Can it be possible to be different and to be cool?
This story will support children aged 5-10 and the adults around them to celebrate their uniqueness and their strengths, as well as boost their self-esteem, confidence, self-belief, and sense of self-worth.
