I love the book Giraffes Can't Dance! It is a wonderfully illustrated book about Gerald the giraffe who wishes he was able to dance like all the other animals in the jungle!
The other animals tease him, but a little cricket comes along and tells Gerald he just needs a different song! The message to children is a powerful one...we are all different but we are all special!
I work extra hard designing graphic organizers and printables that allow younger readers to work on higher level thinking activities!
