Mini feeling: proud

Standing tall and proud.
In Dutch we say 'growing from pride' which basicly means that you grow from being proud about something, I had some help from Chichiboulie and LillyElla because I was not sure this would be said in the English language. Apparently it is nothing used in the English language like we use it in Dutch.
However, LillyElla remembered this childhood story about a giraffe who's neck grew longer and longer to reach the leaves on the trees but with his neck growing, also grew his pride. He became too proud to eat the leaves off the ground. She doesn't remember the rest of the story but it must be the giraffe which is referred to as proud.
If anyone knows which children's book this is, please do let me know, I would be happy to post a link to it here.
Thanks ChichiBoulie & LillyElla for your help. :)
