Giraffes can't dance.

Giraffes Can't Dance - Giles Andreae, Guy Parker-Rees
by Giles Andreae
Illustrations by Guy Parker-Rees

"We all can dance", he said, "when we find music that we love"

This book is not really new, but it's a good one. I thought a reminder would be a good idea.

Poor Gerald! His legs get tangled when he tries to dance! He is so ashamed and sad at the animals dance... But the magic of a cricket's violin will make Gerald dance as in a dream!

Giraffes can't dance is written in verse and illustrated in colorful pictures. I'm again posting a book with the message of knowing your own skills to excel in what you are good at, and respect the other because they are not like you, not better or worse, but different. I choose books like this for my kids pretty often since I think being self-confident and not judgmental of other is something they really should learn. 

Age range: 4 to 7 years old.

  1. I love it! My 18 month old likes it for a few pages and then gets bored. I think he will love it when he is 2 or 3 and has a little more patience for a whole story.
