Abstract:

Mr. Rogers feeds his fish and wonders if fish talk and sing. Mr. McFeely delivers a picture book about Josephine, the short-neck giraffe. Mr. Rogers starts to show the book and tell the story.

In the NOM, Tree, Frog, and Sunflower are talking about growing. They call over to Josephine, who has been wishing by the pond, to join them. Tree says that he has grown new leaves for her to eat; but she cannot reach them. She is sad because her neck is too short and she feels small and ugly. Her friends assure her that her appearance is unimportant, but she says she wants to look like other giraffes. She tried wishing that she would grow taller, but that didn't work. At the Elephant's home, Hazel expresses an interest in playing the trombone, like her Father, and reading, like her mother, so Mrs. Elephant decides that she is ready for school. Hazel asks Josephine to go to school as well, but Josephine remains sad and unhappy. They argue and Hazel reminds Josephine that she is much more than just a neck. Mr. Rogers says that when he was a boy he wanted to be just like his friends, but he eventually realized that he was fine even though he was different. He shows how to pretend being an elephant with and without a costume.
