        Was this book a good fit for the Read Around the USA Challenge?

            Yes!  Another book this month that I absolutely loved!! Thank you for these selections!  This book was such an odd assortment of characters pieced together with historical elements and blended perfectly. A truly beautiful story!

              Absolutely. The author took a small event- the arrival of two giraffes that must cross the country- and developed it into a beautiful story.

                This was one of my favorite novels of 2022. I fell in love with those giraffes and was intrigued by the real life story of giraffes being transported during the Great Depression.

                    Absolutely!  It is a perfect fit.  I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did.  The wonderful reviews in this group piqued my interest, so I had to give it a try.

                    It is a wonderful account of a small, but true event made personal through the wonderful characters.  This is a perfect example of my love for historical fiction.  The reader can learn so much, but yet get caught up in the fictionalized details!!

                      A perfect fit for the category of crossing state lines.  I loved this story–the historical aspect of it as well as the personal character driven story.
