Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae is a funny story about a giraffe who is made fun of because he cannot dance. This story shows children that it is important to always have confidence because it will help you in the long run! I think that students would love this book because it is so colorful and I think that they will think Gerald the giraffe is funny! If I were to use this book in my classroom I would ask the students to write about a time they had courage and how they overcame that fear.
