Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae

What a wonderful find! I can’t believe I had never read this book before. My students loved it, and so did I! The illustrations are so much fun, and the author’s words put great pictures in the readers’ minds. Gerald the giraffe inspires us to be ourselves and “dance to our own tune”. It is a great reminder of how each of us is special, no matter what our talent is. We need to celebrate and accept each individual’s uniqueness. If you want every child in your class to feel special, read this book!
