Giraffe can't see very well. But when her animal friends make her a pair of glasses, she decides she would look silly with them! Instead of wearing them, and to prove to her friends she doesn't need glasses, Giraffe starts putting on protective clothing to stop her hurting herself every time she trips up or stumbles.
