(The) Giraffe that Walked to Paris

**Sorry this is late. I actually got H done before G. LOL**

This year for the A to Z Challenge my theme is Children's Books Around the World. Each book either has a specific setting around the world or is about a world culture.

I've spent this year studying geography - countries and cultures - with the girls. One of the things I love about homeschooling is finding new books to read with my small people, especially ones that go along with what we're studying.

G is for The Giraffe that Walked to Paris by Nancy Milton

This is a true story about the first giraffe that ever lived in Europe. It was a gift from the pasha of Egypt to the king of France in 1826.
