The Best Children's Books #5

Giraffes Can't Dance
Written by Giles Andreae
Illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

Giraffes Can't Dance is a humorous account of a Giraffe named Gerald. This could have been a silly book for silliness sake but I found it had a lot of heart. That's why it stuck with me. There is something a bit magical and sweet in the message. The illustrations are whimsical and are a nice compliment to the text. A good addition to any children's library.
