Gerald the giraffe wants to dance, but his legs are too skinny and his neck is too long. At the Jungle Dance, the warthogs waltz, the chimps cha-cha, and the lions tango. "Giraffes can't dance," they all shout when it's Gerald's turn. But with some advice from a wise cricket, Gerald starts swaying to his own music.This is a great book to show children they can do anything they set their minds to.
After reading, children might come up with other animals that should be invited to the Jungle Dance and what dance they might perform.
