Jimmy the Giraffe Writing Activity was developed by the creators of The Issy Books. It is to be used as a follow up activity to the book, Jimmy the Giraffe. The Issy Books is a set of 11 emergent readers based on delightful characters from the imagination of the five year old illustrator, Issy. Jimmy the Giraffe does not like his long neck until he meets friends like the lion, monkey and zebra. He realizes every animal is special in their own way. It's a great story to reinforce self-concept.
