What makes this book unique?
The author wrote What the Lizard Said as a teacher at a learning clinic, to help children and adults increase their reading and comprehension skills and to expand their vocabularies, all through the fun rhythms of poetry that tells a story.
New words are presented within rhyming stanzas, and Wise Dog and Jimmi and the poetic animals they meet gently introduce readers to more complex sentences and grammar. Wise Dog and Jimmi learn and share universal lessons on their illustrated adventures designed to appeal to the ear and eye, while stirring the imagination, understanding, and a sense of empathy.
What the Lizard Said aims to further a love of language and an appreciation for the beauty and power of graphic art.
