Licky the Lizard

Hello all you kids and kids at heart. Welcome back!

I hope you have been enjoying all the stories Miss Robin has shared? 

There are so many talented people who love writing stories for kids like you!

Well, today’s author is Miss Melissa Henderson! She is a new friend of mine. Miss Melissa and her husband Alan live in a coastal State called South Carolina. That means they live by the ocean!! I love the ocean, do you?

Along with writing children’s stories, Miss Melissa loves volunteering at her church and in her community. She loves her family and likes to spend time making memories with them!

Do you remember special things you have done with your family? I do! We used to take our children for hikes in the desert where we saw many of God’s little creatures. From snakes to bugs to lizards!

Today’s story, Licky the Lizard was created by Miss Melissa who used to be afraid of lizards. But not anymore!  She learned something important that helped her. There was no need to be afraid because God created us and God created the lizards, too. 

Isn’t that great! God created every creature for a reason. So maybe we could learn to get along with all of them. Do you think?

If you would like to buy Miss Melissa’s book “Licky the Lizard” you can find it on Amazon or wherever books are sold. Miss Robin and Stubby the Cat give Licky the Lizard 2 thumbs up! That’s how much we like it! 

Be on the lookout for Miss Melissa’s next children’s book “Grumpy the Gator” to be released soon.

Now, onto what we’ve been waiting for, our featured story

Ready, Set, here we go! 

Purchase “Licky the Lizard” here.

 So now it’s your turn, kids. Pause the podcast and discuss the questions with someone you love and trust.

  1. Why did Licky the Lizard like sticking out his tongue?
  2. Who woke up Licky Lizard as he slept?
  3. What did Licky Lizard want the lady to know?
  4. What are some things that frighten you?

Thank you for sharing your time with me. These short children’s stories feel like the old time “Sit around the Radio” broadcast popular in the past.

I praise you God because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

PSALM 139: 14-16
