    " A book that shows students it is okay to be who they are. I would use this to help build community in the classroom. Students would be able to make text to self connections if they have ever felt similar. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany Young | 2/2/2014

    " This story is super cute! It is about a giraffe who wants to take part in the jungle dance, but is teased by the other animals. At the end, giraffe ends up impressing everyone at the jungle dance! This book could be used to teach students that we all have differences, but it is ok to be different. Anyone can dance when they find music that they love. Loved this story! "

    " This book would be a great addition to the classroom library. It has great illustrations and kids can use their imagination. It also has a message about not judging other and can be read when talking about bullying. "

    " Gerald is a giraffe that can't dance. He tries, but he is still laughed at by the other animals. Then along comes a wise cricket who helps Gerald find his inner rhythm. This book shows us it;s okay to be different and dance to your own tune. I would use this book to discuss creativity and the importance of individuality. "

    " A wonderful and hilarious book that will get kids up and out of their seats! With so many unique dances in this book, it's hard for children to resist getting up and trying them themselves. Definitely use this in a classroom where you want your kids to get up and have fun! "
