30 Day Book Challenge- Day 5

This book never fails to make me smile. The rhythm of the poetry, the bright illustrations, the heartfelt story.. I love this book. Every person I have ever read this book to has also enjoyed it. Who doesn’t love a gangly giraffe trying to dance? I also love the fact that this book holds a message of hope. It explains that no matter who you are or what struggles you may face – it is possible to succeed.

Blurb:

Gerald the giraffe longs 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 jeer when it’s Gerald’s turn to prance. But with some sound advice from a wise cricket, Gerald starts swaying to his own sweet tune.
