G is for Giraffe Walks to Paris #atozchallenge

 Blogging Unit Study ideas using Five in a Row Curriculum Books from A to Z

I am joining literally hundreds of other bloggers to blog through the Alphabet in the month of April (Sunday we get a break!) with a Themed month. This is my first time joining in and I am excited for the challenge.

The Giraffe that Walked to Paris
Nancy Milton

Here is the beguiling true story of the first giraffe ever to live in Europe. The year was 1826, and the giraffe belonged to the pasha of Egypt, who decided to give her as a gift to the king of France. The giraffe journeyed first by boat to Marseilles, then on foot through the towns and villages of France, all the way to Paris. Her arrival in the capital was celebrated with a splendid royal parade, and everywhere she went she caused a sensation.

First written in 1992, this captivating story is back for a new generation of children to enjoy

My youngest is in love with giraffes! We usually find a time each year to learn more about them, and to do lapbooks with them. 
Homeschoolshare.com has a lapbook for giraffes that gave us a pretty well rounded idea of these awesome creatures.

 Lots of books from the library, and shows on youtube and netflix helped us learn more about Giraffes. We didn't do a country on this study, but France would have been the one of choice.
