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 irresistible touch-and-feel format.

Giraffes Can't Dance Synopsis

Come and stroke the animals, give them all a try. Why not start with Gerald? He's a furry, friendly guy. Even the smallest reader will delight in exploring all the animal textures on each page.

Children will love to pore over the bright artwork on each page, whilst the rhyming text makes this book perfect to read aloud.
