Gerald the giraffe longs to dance, but his legs are too skinny and his neck is too long. At the Jungle Dance, the warthogs waltz, the chimps cha-cha, and the lions tango. "Giraffes can't dance," they all jeer when it's Gerald's turn to prance. But with some sound advice from a wise cricket, Gerald starts swaying to his own sweet tune.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and Full of Lessons This book was fun to read- there are a lot of different lessons you could teach from this story besides the obvious one, so there are different things to teach or discuss with children if you want to. I recommend getting a copy with a CD- the additional sound effects would would make a musically-centered book like this even more enjoyable! This story is a good length. There's a lot going on in the illustrations, so it's great for kids who really like to explore the pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another family favorite This book is so much fun and great to use if your planning on doing baby signs with your child. We used this when we were teaching our son the signs for dance, giraffe, lion etc. We have read this book over an over in our home till we memorized it completely. The illustration is great and the message of loving one self no matter what magically comes out at the end. I highly recommend this book in board book form and soft cover.
