Product description

Amazon Review

Gerald was a tall giraffe Whose neck was long and slim, But his knees were awfully bandy And his legs were rather thin...
Every year Gerald dreads the great Jungle Dance, and feels ashamed that he cannot tango and two-step with the rest of the jungle animals. But then one day he realises that it doesn't matter that he is different from everyone else--its just that he needs a different tune to dance to.

A lovely story, wittily illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees and told in rhyme by the award-winning author Giles Andreae, it has a stealth and humour that makes it perfect for reading aloud. Giraffes Can't Dance is a nifty little 1story that children and adults will love to read time and time again. (Ages 3 to 5 years) --Susan Harrison --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

An inspiration. (Church Times)

A wonderful, light-hearted story. (Bournemouth Daily Echo)

A hit with young children since it was first published 10 years ago (Daily Express)

A can-do story with lively pictures and an immensely pleasing text. (Times Educational Supplement)

Brilliant use of colour, a continual sense of movement and high good humour all help to make this picture book richly enjoyable. (Carousel)

A gloriously colourful and lively book with a strong message. (Sunderland Echo)

Superb...a wonderfully funny book. (The Independent)

Extraordinary and exuberant...a terrific tale and a positive message about celebrating difference. (Bournemouth Echo)

This rhyming poem is excellent. (The Bookseller)

Managed to capture the hearts of countless children. A modern classic. (Baby & Me)

A fantastically funny and wonderfully colourful romp (The Daily Telegraph)

A lovely rhyming picture book about understanding differences (motherandbaby.co.uk)

Lovely (Lytham St Annes Express)

This is a lovely story that incorporates several dance forms including waltz, tango, Scottish reel amd rock n roll. I have also used the story to introduce infant classes to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and had them playing along with it (SAME Magazine)

Giraffes Can't Dance ... has been a bestseller for more than 15 years - and for good reason ... There's a very powerful message in there about daring to be different, and accepting others too (Irish Daily Mail)

This rhyming story will delight young children and get them popping along with the rhythm (Evening Standard)
