Gerald the giraffe is ready to strut his stuff at the annual Africa dance. Until... all of the other animals realize what he is about to do and tease and laugh at him (because everyone knows that giraffes can't dance!). Fun to read with an audience. Bright illustrations. ( )

Bought this for a child's christmas present as well. I'm keeping it on my goodreads list because it was a fun story to read, a great message, and nicely illustrated. Definitely on my shortlist for the next child needing a gift. ( )

We use this book a lot in My First Books. But honestly... I do not love it. And trust me, it does not translate well as a board book. The font is far too small. ( )
