Product description

The bestselling Giraffes Can't Dance is now a board book! Giraffes Can't Dance is a touching tale of Gerald the giraffe, who wants nothing more than to dance. With crooked knees and thin legs, it's harder for a giraffe than you would think. Gerald is finally able to dance to his own tune when he gets some encouraging words from an unlikely friend. With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness.

'Giraffes Can't Dance' is a bright, rhythmic book with gorgeous pictures and a good moral to the story. Highly recommended for young readers in board book format.

Review quote

"Andreae's rhyming text has a jaunty rhythm that's likely to spark interest in the read-aloud crowd." -Publishers Weekly
