Giraffes Can't Dance is a touching tale of Gerald the giraffe, who wants nothing more than to dance. With crooked knees and thin legs, it's harder for a giraffe than you would think. Gerald is finally able to dance to his own tune when he gets some encouraging words from an unlikely friend. With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness.

This is the beginning of the vocabulary avalanche! Your child is on the verge of learning so many words a day that you won’t be able to keep up! The next two years is the biggest explosion of vocabulary learning that a child will have in their entire life. Reading books with interesting language and that answer questions your child asks you can help build both vocabulary and knowledge about the world. Your child will be asking lots (and lots!) of questions. How you find out the answers together will show your child that their questions are valuable and that books and reading the internet can help us learn.
