The Book

This is a sweet heartwarming book that highlights the power of never giving up, following your dreams no matter what others think or say, and friendship. 

The tale follows Mimi, an adorable tiny giraffe, whose dream is to become a fashion model.   She learns many valuable life lessons about acceptance, trust, and that it is always best that you have a good sense of humour as you journey along in life.  The book teaches the importance of believing in yourself and  that dreams can come true. 

The colourful vibrant illustrations are beautifully done.  I love the diversity of the animals portrayed and I especially love Mimi's character.  It's a wonderful book with a positive message that I highly recommend.  Excellent job Dr. Betty!
