“Hey,” called a voice. It seemed to be coming from the other side of the leaves.
Georgey Giraffe bent his neck sideways and peered into the bush.
“Come over and see the funny, fat old giraffes,” said the voice, which was Jasmine’s.
“You should not talk that way,” said Georgey. “My father says that we will be old giraffes someday, so we should show respect.”
“Respect – connect – correct,” said little Jasmine, which made no sense – but sounded somewhat like a song. Jasmine loved songs. “What’s respect? Come and see them, Georgey. They are sleeping with their heads on their back feet. Silly old giraffes!”
– – – and children sit forward eagerly to listen. Soon, they begin to act more respectful, and follow Georgey’s great example in everyday life.
