My Review
The Lizard Who Loves a Blizzard is an adorable children's book about a lizard named Larry. Larry lives in Australia, and every winter, he wishes for snow. But Larry's wish doesn't seem like it's ever going to come true. What's a poor lizard to do?
Why, keep wishing, of course! And soon, Larry's wish comes true. It snows in Australia! How does Larry celebrate this magical moment? You'll have to read the story and find out.
I thought this was a cute read. It's got a fun rhyming scheme, and it's easy to follow along with. The illustrations are delightful and really bring the story to life. Kids will enjoy wishing for snow right along with Larry. What kid doesn't love a snow day, right?
Plus, the story has a wonderful message. Keep dreaming. Don't give up on your dreams. One day, they just might come true. Just keep believing.
A great story for all ages.
5 stars!
