Fun story to share that gives the message to believe in yourself and that we are all wonderful in our own way.

Sometimes we do our own dance! I love the message in this book that when we celebrate our own expression, others feel empowered to share theirs.

Gerald learns to dance when he believes in himself. A good story with fun illustrations and a great message!

This by far our favorite book, that we have checked out from the library. Cute rhyming story about "sometimes when you're different you just need a different song"

This book is a great read-aloud choice, as the rhymes are fun, and also, it covers, in a gentle and creative way, the theme of bullying amongst younger kids.

I would recommend it for ages 4 and up.
