With this rhyming, poignant (in a cartoonish way) tale, Giles Andreae, author of Rumble in the Jungle, and numerous other picture books, shows insecure young readers that everyone can be wonderful, even those that march to the beat of a different cricket. The rhymes are somewhat awkward, but the bold, bright watercolors by Guy Parker-Rees will invite readers to kick up their heels and find their own internal harmony. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter

Guy Parker-Rees illustrated the text with colorful pictures that compliment the plot line.
I would not hesitate adding Giraffes Can’t Dance to my K-12 Christian school library.
Giraffes Can’t Dance was purchased as possible literary support for one of our summer fundraisers.
The rhyme and rhythm, colorful illustrations and multitude of animals are so captivating.
I have purchased more than 5 copies so far and plan to continue gifting this book for years to come!
It's all about the way we perceive others and the way we can make others feel so very bad by making fun of them.
It is a heartwarming story that I bought in hardback so we can reread it through out her young years.
She is now just three but can read a little of it herself.
he LOVES this story so much she pushed to learn words so she could read it to me. Gilbert even has a wood pull TOY giraffe and a stuffed giraffe named after him.
Buy this for ANY child from 1 year to 6! They will LOVE " GIRAFFES CAN'T DANCE". I PROMISE!
