Giraffes can't dance

  1. 2. Gerald was a TALL giraffe. His neck was long and slim but his legs were awfully bandy.
  2. 3. He was very good at munching leaves from the trees.
  3. 4. But when he tried to run around He buckled at the knees
  4. 5. <ul><li>Now every year in Africa they hold the Jungle Dance </li></ul>
  5. 6. Poor Gerald felt so sad because when it came to dancing he was really, really bad.
  6. 7. The warthogs started waltzing
  7. 8. And the rhinos rock’n’rolled
  8. 9. The lions danced a tango which was elegant and bold
  9. 10. The chimps all did a cha-cha with a very Latin feel
  10. 11. And 8 baboons teamed up for a splendid Scottish reel
  11. 12. “ Hey look at clumsy Gerald!” “Giraffes can’t dance, you silly fool!”
  12. 13. Gerald simply froze up and he started walking home
  13. 14. “ The moon can be so beautiful”
  14. 15. <ul><li>“ Excuse me” said a cricket “ but sometimes when you’re different you just need a different song” </li></ul>“ Listen to the grass and listen to the trees”
  15. 16. With that, the cricket picked up his violin.
  16. 17. Then Gerald felt his body do the most amazing thing and leapt in the air
  17. 18. “ I am dancing, I am dancing, I am DANCING!!” Gerald cried
  18. 19. The animals shouted: “It’s a miracle! We must be in a dream, Gerald’s the best dancer. That we ever ever seen!!”
  19. 20. Then he raised his head and looked up at the moon. “We all can dance” he said, “If we find the music that we love”
