The Lovereading4Kids comment

A little encouragement was all that was needed to make Gerald the Giraffe realise 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 and made even more spectacular in this new DVD edition.

Synopsis

Giraffes Can't Dance (book and DVD) by Giles Andreae

Gerald would love to join in with the other animals at the Jungle Dance but everyone knows that giraffes can't dance ...or can they? This classic and bestselling picture book is now brought to life on DVD. Watch Gerald and his animal friends dance to the jungle music in this lively animation, narrated by actor Hugh Laurie, then join the party with the read along activity and dancing games.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
