Award-Winning Children's book — Gerome Sticks His Neck Out

Gerome Sticks His Neck Out
Written by L.S.V. Baker; Illustrated by M.E.B. Stottmann

“He no longer stuck out, his height no longer laughable. But with his head hanging low, he felt most ungiraffeable.”
Gerome does not like the attention he draws due to his height. He finds a way to keep a low profile but knows he isn’t being genuine. He is finally able to fully embrace his height, and its advantages, when his concern for another becomes greater than his concern for himself.

Through storytelling, Baxter’s CornerTM pursues its mission to inspire young children to develop positive social skills that affect behavior choices. Each book features fun filled pages that Go Beyond the reading with a series of questions and learning activities that focus on an important point for your young listener or reader, including:
• “What do you think” questions
• Fun facts about the featured animals
• Social skill activities
• “Stop and think” situations that show the effects of choices we make

  1. What a great book!! It sounds like this would be a great way to show kids how we are all different and we can embrace that. My youngest lays flat and wears a bipap mask due to having a muscle disease. We have a lot of people stare and ask questions. We like to tell kids that his bipap mask helps him breathe but it also helps him blow bubbles! Teaching about differences and how to embrace them is great!
