It’s OK, Slow Lizard
In the forest, live a variety of creatures, one busy, another mighty, and still another speedy. Funny Monkey and Slow Lizard dwell there, too. Little Bird, who scurries around anxiously, is trying to prepare for tomorrow, a never-ending task for her. Mighty Elephant has minimal tolerance for frustrations, and Speedy Rabbit sadly loses an important race. Slow Lizard goes through life at a snail’s pace, so he notices things around him like when others need help or comfort. He offers a hand or support. When the other forest-dwellers follow his example, they begin to see the beauty in life and embrace what really matters.
In a world that moves at lightning speed, It’s Ok, Slow Lizard provides a necessary reminder that much can be lost in the hustle of everyday life if one isn’t careful. This lesson is essential for children to absorb as they grow and develop into healthy, well-balanced teenagers and adults. Their schedules are often overflowing with activities and commitments, so they’ll likely relate to this poignant message and will adore the precious animals woven through the story. The illustrations feature soft, autumn hues and complement the warm, gentle tone of the text. Youth ages four to eight will savor this sweet tale.
