  • Reading Level: Grade 2

A mother giraffe and her young calf explore the African savanna.

The rain clouds are long gone and the dry season scorches the land. Everything is new for the baby giraffe. As she bounds ahead and lags behind, her mother patiently explains the ways of the grasslands. And until she grows a little taller, older, and wiser, her mother reminds her: “You’re strong with me.”

From the makers of award-winning You’re Safe With Me and Kirkus Best Picture Book of the Year, You’re Snug With Me.
