The Lovereading4Kids comment

A touching and triumphant story republished in celebration of the title’s 10th birthday about how the giraffe goes from being hopeless on the dance floor to becoming the star of the show. Jeered by all for his disastrous dancing, Gerald the giraffe dreads the great Jungle dance. But, helped by the cricket who leads him to find his own rhythm, the giraffe soon becomes a dancing sensation! Stunning illustrations as ever from Guy Parker-Rees coupled with Giles Andrae’s sublime rhyming poem that will delight every child and parent alike. A triumph of a book.

Synopsis

Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae

A little encouragement was all that was needed to make Gerald the Giraffe realize that he could, after all, dance as well as any other animal in the kingdom. So, for any child that suffers from a lack of confidence this is the perfect book to give them that confidence to do something they didn’t think they could do.
