Publisher Comments:

Gerald the giraffe longs to dance, but his legs are too skinny and his neck is too long. His knees buckle whenever he tries to twirl. At the Jungle Dance, the warthogs waltz, the chimps cha-cha, and the lions tango. "Giraffes can't dance", they all jeer when it's Gerald's turn to prance.<P>Fortunately, there is one little creature who believes in Gerald. "Everything makes music", says the cricket, "if you really want it to". So Gerald starts swaying to his own sweet tune.<P>With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness.

This book is a great story to teach kids about feeling confident in themselves. It is also a wonderful story to introduce kids to different types of dances: waltz, tango, ramba, cha cha, scottish jig, etc. I'm a music teacher and I teach this to my 3rd graders. We discuss what each dance looks like, then the kind of music that might acccompany the dance. The class breaks up into groups and we read it again - but this time, after I say "The monkeys danced the cha cha...", the monkey group plays their instruments and dances the cha cha (and the same with the elephants, worthogs, etc) It can be done w/ several kids, or even just your own child. It is a really enjoyable book!
