Bedtime Story: Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae

Read for: Children's Book Challenge
Synopsis: "Gerald the giraffe longs to dance, but his legs are too skinny and his neck is too long. At the Jungle Dance, the warthogs waltz, the chimps cha-cha, and the lions tango. "Giraffes can't dance," they all jeer when it's Gerald's turn to prance. But with some sound advice from a wise cricket, Gerald starts swaying to his own sweet tune."

My Review: Munchkin picked this book out as a reward. I don't think he quite grasps the message in the story, which is a great one about anyone can dance (or anything really) they just have to find their own style or way. The images are fun and a little quirky. It is a fun story and Munchkin has really enjoyed it.
My Rating: While something is a little lost on Munchkin, he still enjoys the animals and their silliness throughout the story. It may speak to the older readers more than the really young ones.  We give it a rating of Three Paws.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
