With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness.

The giraffe is very sad about his awkwardness and embarrassed about his lack of skills until he meets a grasshopper (cricket maybe?) who basically tells him that he just needs to find a different song to dance to. When Gerald the Giraffe listens to the sounds of nature, he begins to sway and move gracefully to the sounds and figures out he really can dance. He just needed some encouragement and some different music.
It's a well-read story with page turning sounds and enough vocal expression that you're not bored when listening to it. My daughter and I like this one the best of all the read-along books we've purchased lately. I like it because it tells a story about how it's ok to be different, how each of us has something to celebrate, and how sometimes what makes you different actually makes you special and incredible. My 4 year old daughter likes it because it's a positive message and because it rhymes and has good background music to listen to.
