Giraffes Can't Dance


I am sad to say that I happen to be a terrible dancer.  Reading Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae gave me hope that one day I will find a beat that can help me move with out looking like a flailing fish.  Gerald the Giraffe longs to strut his stuff at the annual Jungle Dance, but there's one daunting problem: he's bad at dancing!  When he gives it a try all the animals laugh at him, so he makes his escape into the woods.  Once in safety, Gerald meets a cricket with some wise words.  Looking up at the moon, Gerald finds his inspiration and begins to throw out dance moves that would make Fred Astaire jealous.  With colorful illustrations and a catchy rhyme scheme, Giraffes Can't Dance is sure to loosen you up and get you moving in no time!
