Letters From Readers

Since Bebe and Poppy made their debut, they have traveled quite a distance. They have been seen in several cities in California, Washington State, Arizona, Texas, Ohio, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii, Japan and New Zealand. Not bad for a couple of lizards, it must be those tennis shoes that help them travel so far, so fast!

Grace loved "Why Lizards Wear Tennis Shoes. She took it to school to share with her friends . . . it wound up on Reading Buddy Day with the 5th and 6th graders. The older kids each took turns reading a page of the book to the 1st graders! Her teacher said that the kids loved the illustrations and it provided a great discussion on how special God made lizards.

I absolutely love the story . . . the band-aid on the tail is a stroke of genius . . . already looking forward to the next episode to see how my new found friends cope with a new dilemma. As life is full of misadventures . . . the sooner we learn how to face troubles and move forward . . . the better prepared we are. Obviously, Bebe and Poppy know how to make lemonade out of lemons.
