Gerald the Giraffe

Click on the link and watch the story. Gerald the giraffe longs to dance like everyone else, but he looks different than the rest of the animals, and he just can't seem to get it right. When the rest of the jungle animals make fun of Gerald, he almost gives in to despair - until a friendly cricket gives him some wise advice, and Gerald discovers his own tune. Using Chatterpix, describe how Gerald is feeling at the start of the story, as well as at the end. In your caption, make sure you include what the message of the story is.
