How Giraffes Grow Up
Readers will learn all about baby giraffes, including what they eat and how they fall six feet to the ground when they are born. Amazing photographs of these super-cute animals are accompanied by Fast Facts. This book supports the Next Generation Science Standards on growth and development of organisms, biodiversity, and social interactions in animal groups by exploring such details as how calves learn to stand within a half hour after being born, and how they protect themselves in the wild. Budding scientists can follow giraffe calves as they grow into independent adults.
