"Sayre spotlights 28 lizards, drawing attention to their most noteworthy behaviors and features. Laberis' brightly colored digital artwork brings these vividly hued creatures to life. Appended with extensive notes on the selected species, this makes a good STEM-themed read-aloud or introduction to herpetology units." -- Booklist

"(C)lever rhyming text...(with) bright, digitally rendered and labeled illustrations...This rhythmic, zippy work is packed with verbs printed in bold-faced type. Valuable not only for reptile enthusiasts but also as a mentor text for students working to expand their own writing vocabularies. A fun and useful purchase that a range of readers will enjoy." - School Library Journal

"Using a series of rhythmic triplets followed by two-syllable lines, Sayre invites young readers and listeners to imagine being a lizard...this text would be a delight for storytime, encouraging imitation. An appealing invitation to look more closely at the world of lizards and a welcome addition to a nature shelf." - Kirkus Reviews
