Deep in the African plains lives a young giraffe, Kanuki. Kanuki, unlike the other giraffes, has a particularly short neck. Kanuki is grieved by this physical shortcoming and it affects her ability to live a life of fulfillment. One day Kanuki is met by a visitor, who shows her the wishing tree before bidding her one last piece of advice, “You must choose your own path. All you need is to believe in yourself.” Will Kanuki heed this advice? Will Kanuki be granted a long neck by the wishing tree? Join in on this entertaining tale of self-discovery.
This delightful children’s story is also available in Kiswahili.
