It was the first day of school, and Emma very excited for school. She was ready to meet the other 5-year old giraffes in her class, and make some new friends. She woke up with a smile on her face, ready to take on the first day of school. She got ready, ate her breakfast, and quickly got out the door.
Hey, why are you so small?
First Day of School!!
As Emma was walking to school, she began to have butterflies in her stomach. Hopefully I can make some new friends. What if no one likes me? I hope I won’t have to sit alone. Each step she took, a new nervous though popped into her head.
Emma walked through the entrance and straight into her class. A couple giraffes were already there sitting at their desks when she arrived. Emma quickly noticed that she was much smaller than the other giraffes, she sat at a desk in the middle of classroom, as her nervous thoughts kept coming back.
Two giraffes walked up to Emma and said, “I’m Aila and this is Sarai. What’s your name?”. “Um, I’m Emma”, she responded. “Hey, why are you so small? You are really short, I mean look at everyone else you are so tiny.” Emma answered with a frown, “I don’t really know”. Aila and Sarai walked away laughing. Emma was sad the rest of the day, and couldn’t wait until school was over.
School was finally over, after what had felt like 100 hours! Emma was walking home, with tears in her eyes. Why can’t I be taller, it’s not fair! I wish I could be as tall as everyone else. If only I get some stilts or heels, maybe then I would be taller.
