Giraffes Can't Dance (Anniversary) | Giles Andreae, Guy Parker-Rees
post image

Gerald is a giraffe who simply can't dance. Try as he may, his long, spindly legs buckle whenever he starts to boogy. Every year he dreads going to the Great Jungle Dance - until one night when he finds his own special music...

I never realized how hard it was to find a book I‘ve read that starts with J! I settled on this classic Kipling which I first read a long time ago & loved(not to mention the Disney movie🐻🦍🐆)Then I read it to my children and now my grandchildren. A book that deserves the title Classic.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Excellent choice!! 2mo

#MayMoms - Memorable: This is Raksha, Mowgli‘s wolf mom. She raises him in the jungle. She calls him one of her own. She claims him sibling to her cubs. She exhibits the greatest wisdom in not differentiating between them. The same love. The same loyalty. The same devotion. The same protection. The same kindness. The same generosity. The same everything. She sees herself as his mother. She sees him as her cub. She sees them together as family.

BookDragonNotWorm I love this! I was obsessed with the movie as a kid (I was jealous). Still was when I read Kipling's stories when I got older. 😁 5mo

Kayla.Adriena Good one! I love the line Lupita says in the movie, "You are mine to me." ??? 5mo
Nute @BookDragonNotWorm I totally get it. I think that I had a mild obsession too! However, mine was with the soundtrack from the old Disney film.🤗 5mo

Nute @Kayla.Adriena Yes! Powerful scene. “Mine to me. No matter where you go or what they may call you.” Thanks for bringing those words back to me!☺️ 5mo

This book was… fine? Going in, I didn‘t realize that 1.) it was short stories and 2.) there are two Jungle Book volumes. I just read the first because I felt like one was enough. The stories that feature Mowgli were definitely the most developed. I‘ve never actually seen the animated version of The Jungle Book and now I feel like I have to!

My second #roll100 for April

PuddleJumper Nicely done! 6mo

This is definitely not Disney's Jungle Book. While certainly not a favorite it doesn't deserve a pan; but I cannot see fit to recommend it either. I'm also very glad it wasn't any longer. Hard to believe this was written for children.
