My Review
THE LIZARD WHO LOVES A BLIZZARD by Shelley Larkin and Michael John Sullivan is a simply adorable kids book. I loved the winter theme as it made it perfect for the holiday season and as the owner of a crested gecko and a bearded dragon I was very happy to see an animal main character that was not the normal puppy or kitten! The pictures were all very cute and well done and the word choice was very age appropriate.
