Cha-cha with the chimps, rock ‘n’ roll with the rhino in this funny and very moving story about Gerald the Giraffe who longs to dance – but is laughed off the dance floor. Hilarious illustrations complement Giles Andreae’s rollicking rhyme.
A wonderfully illustrated, fun tale depicting an important message through Gerald, the giraffe. All the jungle animals have their own specialty dance except poor Gerald. Their teasing and bullying have made Gerald feeling sad and bad about himself. However, with a little advice and encouragement, he soon learns it’s OK to be different and those who are just “Need a different song.”
The plot presents a great opportunity to discuss the harmful effects of teasing and laughing at others who are different, while at the same time encouraging those who don’t fit into the average peg to delight and love their uniqueness.
