About Giraffes Can’t Dance

All the animals in the African jungle can boogie. The warthogs waltz, the rhinos rock and the lions dance the tango. Poor Gerald the giraffe doesn’t think he can dance like the others.

Enter a smart cricket who instills confidence & teaches Gerald that “sometimes when you’re different, you just need a different song!”
