The Lovereading4Kids comment

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. 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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
